The Trump administration budget proposal to be released Tuesday will have the deepest cuts to government programs in a generation, according to The Hill.

"A New Foundation for American Greatness" sets out a 10-year plan to balance the budget by a mix of cuts to poverty programs – including the foodstamp program, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, Temporary Assistance for Needy Families, and cuts to the earned income tax credit and child tax credit – the State Department, the EPA, the Department of Agriculture, and other non-defense agencies.

It will eliminate or phase out funding for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowment for the Arts, and a big portion of the cuts to domestic spending will be made to Medicaid.

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said the poverty program cuts would come from tightening eligibility for the programs, adding work requirements, and shifting more of the financial burden to states.

The budget allocates $2.6 billion for improved border security, including $1.6 billion for Trump's physical wall on the Mexican border.

The budget plan proposes a $25 billion expenditure for paid family leave, an issue first daughter Ivanka Trump has championed.
