The Trump administration is seeking major cuts to federal spending upon taking office, with plans to eliminate agencies and programs to reduce the budget by over $10 trillion.
The National Endowment for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Humanities would be eliminated, according to a new report on the administrations spending priorities published by the Hill.
Both arts agencies have budgets of roughly $147 million. The NEA awards millions of dollars worth of grants for art projects each year, which have included plays about assassinating Christopher Columbus, food stamps, and gun-control activist lesbians, climate change poetry, and Doggie Hamlet.

And I think he knows the difference between a CUT and a LESS OF AN INCREASE.
Let Soros and Steyer finance the arts ... do something good with their ill-gotten billions for once.
have included plays about assassinating Christopher Columbus...
All these minorities, feminists and what ever other freaks get money from the NEA combined aren’t worth one Italian.
Columbus had guts. SICK of this Columbus Day bull####.
We’d welcome a protest on Staten Island during the parade.
Please God, may it be so.
so let’s see- keep funding idiot liberal socialism that produces crap like assassinating Christopher Columbus, food stamps, and gun-control activist lesbians, climate change poetry, and Doggie Hamlet.
Take the money that is saved, and put it towards helping poor families get proper nutrition and health care so they can be strong productive members of society
Sorry liberals- no contest- It’s obvious you want people to die so that ‘the arts; can continue- Take yer whinin elsewhere-
Does this mean that the taxpayers will no longer pay “artists” to take a picture of a bull whip stuffed into a man’s butt? Oh the horror. That is censorship! /s
Wow - between the spending cuts and the huge growth in the economy, he’ll pay for the infrastructure spending and dissolve the nation’s debt in one term.
Get on with it.
WHAT WILL WE DO WITHOUT THE NEVADA COWBOY POETRY FESTIVAL!!! Women and minorities hardest hit.
Outstanding...The leftists will go ballistic.
This could be a win, win.
Trump cuts the budget, and liberals have less money to donate to loser candidates!
“The NEA awards millions of dollars worth of grants for art projects each year..”
Dumping millions of dollars into something with zero ROI.
That’s how you big government.
Please, let this be true.
He better. If he doesn't, he's no different from his predecessors.
Love it, short the banks! No more gravy train.
Seriously. In Quigley’s “Tragedy and Hope”, he found in the secret archives of the CFR that the bankers thought FDR was stupid. The whole New Deal was a bankers dream (that they had sold to him). They loaned the government billions of dollars that it had to pay back, with interest.
Trump is wise to this and plans to sell land leases to companies to explore and drill for oil. This could raise up to a trillion dollars to spend on infrastructure. No massive bank loan to add to the deficit.
