Next week President Trump will present his first detailed budget request, and according to the Washington Post, it will include something his daughter has been pushing for since he became the Republican nominee: paid family leave.
Trump's push marks a key departure from Republicans' traditional opposition to paid family leave, a benefit long espoused by Democrats. The administration said this approach would give states flexibility and stressed that the administration would provide support to state governments to help them determine how to fund the program. If this program is truly worth having, President Trump's budget will have either offsetting budget cuts for it or they will create a source of revenue to pay for it. Trump's budget is expected to call for defense spending increases, funding for a wall on the border with Mexico, more Border Patrol agents, cut taxes sharply, and no cuts to entitlement programs like Medicare and Social Security.
