Statement on the White House FY 2021 Budget

White House

Washington, D.C. – Bread for the World released the following statement regarding reports about the Trump administration’s proposed fiscal year 2021 budget. The statement can be attributed to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World:

“We are alarmed by the Trump administration’s fiscal year 2021 budget, which would drastically cut funding for programs for people living in hunger and poverty. We will continue to work with Congress to hold back these harmful cuts. Unfortunately, the administration has repeatedly found other means of pursuing its budget cuts through rulemaking and administrative action. Congress must rein in the administration’s rulemaking.”
