President Donald Trump proposes cutting federal agencies' funds to reduce deficit

Washington, Oct 18 (UITV/IANS) - US President Donald Trump announced that he intends to reduce the American federal budget deficit by cutting financing to every government agency and department by 5 per cent.

"I'm going to ask each of you to come back with a 5 per cent cut for our next meeting, I think you'll all be able to do it... Get rid of the fat, get rid of the waste... It will have a huge impact," Trump told the Cabinet at the White House on Wednesday, adding that he would be willing to allow "special exemptions" for one or two departments but some might have to undergo cuts larger than 5 per cent.
