President Trump’s 2020 budget proposal has called for eliminating popular programs such as the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which helps fund stations such as PBS and NPR, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
Trump had proposed eliminating the programs in his last two budgets as well, suggestions that Congress ignored.
The 2020 request, which was released in its entirety on Monday, called for scrapping $435 million from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and $126 million from the National Endowment for the Arts, leaving both with a few million dollars to manage an orderly shutdown.
Correction: Previous story stated $435 billion. This typo was corrected to $435 Million.
