Salon: The butcher’s bill keeps coming due: Donald Trump’s Hannibal Lecter budget cannibalizes his own supporters - The president's proposed 2018 budget serves up a rich feast to the wealthy. His supporters are the main course by Chauncey DeVega
The president’s proposed 2018 budget will severely harm rural communities. For example, while Trump was lying about helping coal miners and bringing back that dying industry, “his proposed budget will slash funds for the Appalachian Regional Commission, a federal-state agency founded in 1965 to promote economic development and infrastructure in some of the poorest parts of the United States,”as The New York Times has reported. These rural voters in red-state America were among Trump’s strongest supporters.

Standard hard right beliefs Dispose the dispossessed because they have to be punished. God's grace is shown to the wealthy because they're rich and therefore we must bestow even more blessings upon them. This is why most folks of the religious right won't bat an eyelash at Donald's et. al. up front looting and pillaging of the public treasury while in office. Donald the man of GOLD can do as he pleases God is with him.
