While speaking aboard on USS Gerald R. Ford Saturday, Donald Trump drifted off course and started referring to himself in the third person like a mad man.
In the midst of discussing part of his disastrous budget blueprint, he motioned everyone to give him “a little hand” and call their representatives in Congress.
Now we need Congress to do its job and pass the budget that provides for higher, stable and predictable funding levels for our military needs that our fighting men and women deserve. And you will get – believe me. President Trump, I will tell you, you will get it, don’t worry about it. But I don’t mind getting a little hand, so call that congressman and call that senator and make sure you get it. And by the way, you can also call those senators to make sure you get health care.
According to Politicus, Trump’s budget includes massive increases in military spending, which the Pentagon isn’t even asking for–making devastating cuts to other important areas, including Medicaid, education, and environmental programs.
Trump may have told the crowd assembled on the carrier to call their senators to “make sure you get health care,” but they are more likely to lose their insurance if Republican members of Congress do find a way to pass the current version of Trumpcare, Politcus reported.
