Once again with eye on the budget, the White House has moved steadily forward on how to save the US money.
Eliminating aid programs for newly-documented immigrants in housing vouchers, medicaid, and food stamps is now official.
Money saved here can be considerable, whereas there are still plenty of bridges in America that, as yet, do not have tent cities under them.
Moreover, the White House is determined to save on Air Force One expenses.
In background, in 2106 President Trump declared he would not tolerate a four billion-dollar expense for new Air Force One Aircraft.
“Way too expensive,” he is reported to have said.
Surveyed on how they feel about these economic measures, the poor, desperate, and homeless have weighed in.
They are very glad enough money is going toward US Military Programs and protecting the nation.
The US military budget outranks annual military expenditures of the rest of all nations on earth put together (or if not, soon will).
Furthermore, the poor, homeless, and down and out also expressed satisfaction with Mr. Trump's handling of the Boeing "deal of the century."
Boeing has offered the Pentagon its "buy two get three" deal.
That would be a price of six billion, or 2 billion per, for three aircraft.
(Note: that's billion, not million--2 billion for ONE aircraft and hangar arrangement.)
But Mr. Trump has turned down this deal.
The package has been settled at only $5.3 billion dollars, or $2.65 billion each.
But for only two aircraft.
Jared and Ivanka are rumored disappointed they will not have their own private coach.
Mr. Trump has thus served the American economy in a heart-warming expression of "the art of the deal."
At only a $1.3 billion rise in cost since the four billion price for two jets back in 2016, the President has done well.
Especially given the rates of inflation these days.
