Trump’s proposed budget slashes renewable energy funding

Under the newly proposed budget for the fiscal year 2019, Trump wants to offer the Department of Energy $30.6 billion.

Which technically is an increase from $30.1 billion in fiscal 2017.

But here’s the catch, the DOE’s renewable energy office would be cut more than 65 percent, from a budget of roughly $2 billion to $696 million.

Reports suggest that this White House’s $4.4 trillion budget that slashes clean energy programs, would increase the deficit by more than $7 trillion over time.
