Washington, March 29 (UITV/IANS)- Indian-American Congressman Ro Khanna, a Democrat who represents the 17th Congressional District of California, known as the Silicon Valley, called US President Donald Trump a "devil" and his budget proposal "dumb".
"You talk to members of Congress and they don't agree with everything he says. Even Republicans. They are as embarrassed," Khanna -- a teacher, lawyer and a politician -- said in a video interview to news channel TYT Politics, published on Monday.
"Why aren't they speaking out? It's because he is helping achieve their vision which is the dismantling of the administrative state. The dismantling of the new deal, in a way that Ronald Reagan even didn't," he said.
"... So they are saying, OK, we are gonna make the bargain with the devil. He is giving us what we want. Let's ignore everything else."
Responding to a question on what bothers him the most about the Trump administration's budget proposal, which might get passed, too, Khanna said "foreign aid".
"I mean, I can't think of a more dumb proposal than, frankly, than cutting that ."
