Trump Budget Draws Ire, Concern From Minority Communities

WASHINGTON (AP) — Advocates for minority communities say the budget proposed by President Donald Trump will hit them hard if it's adopted.

Trump's spending plan for the budget year beginning Oct. 1 generally makes deep cuts in safety-net programs. Those include Medicaid, the Children's Health Insurance Program and Social Security's disability program. The White House says its budget would put the country back on track for a healthy economy.

The founder of Philadelphia's Living Water United Church of Christ, Bishop Dwayne Royster says many poor, non-white families will be devastated by cuts to programs they need.
