Thursday morning on "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn and the guys examined a list of federal agencies and programs that President Donald Trump has placed on the chopping block in his proposed 2018 budget. While the budget is likely to be modified significantly during the congressional process, Trump's plan accounts for a $54 billion increase in annual defense spending — and $2.6 billion and $1.4 billion for the border wall and school choice initiatives, respectively — with steep cuts to many longstanding federal departments, including the EPA and the State Department.
Beck was thrilled to see some of the programs on the list targeted for elimination, including the African Development Foundation, the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The elimination of the latter program was especially welcome to Glenn, who has frequently targeted Wilson as a "progressive liar."
"That was the olive branch, and I'll take that olive branch," Beck said. "I am so pro-Trump right now."
