As explained by the Post, among the $8.6 billion that Trump seeks in his budget and money diverted through his National Emergency, the White House, "could complete at least 722 miles of barriers", at the border, enough to declare fulfilled his electoral promise. The Kaiser Family Foundation estimates that 1.4 million to 4 million impoverished Americans could lose Medicaid coverage if work requirements were scaled nationwide. Trump's budget would cut existing Medicare rates; single payer would reduce payments from today's mix of private and public payers.
Most of the requests that have been put forward by Trump in the past have been rejected by Congress, but that hasn't stopped him from being bold this time.
USA president Donald Trump's 2020 budget proposal released Monday is unlikely to pass in the Democrat-controlled House and is set to create yet another major political battle, experts have said.

But the head of a major hospital association was pushing back, saying in a blog that "arbitrary and blunt" Medicare cuts would have a "devastating" impact on care for seniors. "Hospitals are less and less able to cover the cost of care for Medicare patients; it is no time to gut Medicare". But nothing so epitomizes the transformation of the GOP under Trump as its abandonment of the traditional Republican interest in curbing federal spending and reducing a deficit that continues to rise, despite the strong economy. "So these are not cuts, these are savings over the life of the 10-year window", he said at the House Budget Committee hearing on March 12.
"This budget says a lot about the President's priorities: cut $845 billion from Medicare, while spending billions on his vanity project, the wall", Sen. "And it's not fair to the people that have been paying in for years and now all of the sudden they want to. cut".
