“Here are the top… takeaways from President Donald Trump's fiscal 2019 budget request: It doesn't balance. Trump, the self-described ‘king of debt,’ offers no path to a balanced budget over the coming decade. Instead, his plan would produce deficits as far as the eye can see, resulting in $7.1 trillion of additional red ink in the next 10 years… The plan amounts to a rebuke of the economic assumptions made less than a year ago, in Trump's fiscal 2018 budget submission… Less than a year later, none of those assumptions still stand."
