Congress has way more to do with the spending than the President does. I am disappointed in this President not doing more to curtail spending where he can, but he has reduced regulations and government excess is places, and along with the tax cuts are the reasons the economy is doing so well. I believe him when he says he wants to do more to reduce the size of government, but I don’t really believe most of the Republicans in Washington who SAY they want to as well. The votes for spending bills (which are NOT a budget!) are very nearly 100% votes by both parties. They sure do agree on that. Revenue is not the problem spending is.

You NAILED IT!

And we have a democrat-controlled congress.
Trump may be the single most powerful one guy, but he's still just one guy,
and the majority of the politicians, both republicans & democrats,
prefer to see America fail than for Trump to succeed?

Boomers ITT SHOCKED to find out Congress is entirely bought and paid for by those "free market" corporations that they vouched for for years.

We should start by cutting all Foreign aid and all Government Pensions.
