  • Congress Girds for Fight Over Expected Trump Spending Cuts  Reuters — The Trump administration is preparing to submit to the U.S. Congress up to $25 billion in immediate spending cuts, including possible reductions to social safety-net programs, lawmakers said on Wednesday, in a move that could upend a budget deal enacted last month. The White House plan, which has not yet been unveiled, would call on Congress to rescind funding already enacted into law. It likely would be submitted next month, sometime after a recess that ends on May 7. Veteran House of Representatives Republican Tom Cole told reporters that the package of proposed cuts was being scaled back from the $60 billion initially floated by the administration. He added that it could include cuts of funds appropriated for 2016 and 2017 that have not been spent.
