The Club for Growth offered some constructive criticism of the White House budget unveiled Monday, saying the Trump administration and lawmakers on Capitol Hill need to work together to lower the federal deficit.

The group's president David McIntosh first praised the 2020 spending blueprint for helping to continue economic growth, but he quickly turned into a critic.

"Club for Growth remains deeply concerned about the deficits within the budget proposal, which totals over $1 trillion each year until 2023," McIntosh said in a statement. "These deficits mirror the deficits President Obama left on the American people.

McIntosh then brought up entitlement programs, saying they need to be reformed in order to stay afloat and lower costs.

"Club for Growth encourages President Trump to work with Congress to make abrupt reforms that save these important programs for future generations," he said.

"Club for Growth also encourages every Member of the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate to look in the mirror and demand better of yourself on federal spending."
