How Would Trump's Budget Plan Impact Connecticut?
On Monday, 22 people died and more than two dozen were injured in a horrific terrorist attack at a concert in Manchester, England. President Trump took time out of his whirlwind international tour to respond to the tragedy. "I call them losers because that's what they are," he said, speaking about the ISIS-claimed attackers. "They are losers and we'll have more of them. But they're losers, just remember that."
Meanwhile, Trump's first presidential trip has taken him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, and on Wednesday he visits the Pope in Rome.
At home, the president's budget proposal was released yesterday: A New Foundation for American Greatness. It's getting criticism from the left and right for deep cuts to social programs and increases in military spending.
In Connecticut, our own budget woes continue, with the glimmer of a union concessions deal on the horizon. This hour, we talk terrorism, budgets, and so much more.
