Trump calls for fifteen billion cut in budgetThe proposal comes as the White House and conservative Republicans in the U.S. Congress were edging away from a threat to pick a new budget fight with Democrats after Republicans initially floated some $60 billion in cuts a few weeks ago.

Senior administration officials said the initial package of proposed cuts was targeted at federal funds that were sitting unspent. It would not affect a two-year budget deal agreed in February.

More “rescission” packages, including a “large” one that would address cuts Trump wants from that deal, would be forthcoming, one senior administration official said.

The proposed cut to the CHIP program drew a rebuke from U.S. Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer.

“It appears that sabotaging our health care system to the detriment of middle-class families wasn’t enough for President Trump and Republicans; now they’re going after health care dollars that millions of children rely on, especially during outbreaks of the flu and other deadly illnesses,” he said in a statement after an initial report about the CHIP proposal.
