美国总统唐纳德·川普的预算办公室主任说,政府拟议的支出计划,是总统竞选时提出的愿景,他实际上正在履行他对美国人民的承诺。

预算办公室主任马瓦尼星期日告诉NBC电视台的“会见新闻界”节目,这意味着“更多的钱用于国防,更多的钱用于确保边界,更多的钱用于总的执法。”

虽然预算方案削减了艺术、环境保护和社会服务的支出,但马瓦尼表示,这体现了“同情心”。

他说: “不仅在于金钱往哪里去方面的同情心,也在于金钱从哪里来方面的同情心。作为预算主任,我能看着西维吉尼亚州的煤矿工人说'请你把一些钱交给联邦政府,以便我可以把它交给国家艺术基金会’吗?”

马瓦尼还说,川普提出的预算增加了他的优先事项方面的支出,而不增加赤字。他告诉NBC,一份详细的预算将于5月份准备就绪,它将包括一个在10年内平衡联邦预算的大纲。

Trump Budget Director Calls President's Budget "Compassionate"

President Donald Trump's budget director says the proposed government spending plan is the vision on which the president ran and that he actually is following through on his promises to the American people.

Mick Mulvaney told NBC television's Meet the Press Sunday that means "more money for defense, more money to secure the border, more money for law enforcement generally."

Although the proposed budget slashes spending for the arts, environmental protection and social services, Mulvaney described what he calls its "compassion."

"Not just the compassion in terms of where the money goes but the compassion of where the money comes from. Could I as a budget director look at the coal miner in West Virginia and say 'I want you please to give some of your money to the federal government so that I can give it to the National Endowment for the Arts?'"

Mulvaney said Trump's proposed budget increases spending on his priorities without adding to the deficit. He told NBC that a detailed budget will be ready in May, and says it will include an outline for balancing the federal budget within 10 years.
