President Donald Trump on Monday told the nation’s governors that he will submit an “America First” budget that concentrates on security threats at home and devolves powers to the states.

The president’s address at a meeting of the National Governors Association came as his administration reportedly is drafting a spending plan that calls for a $54 billion increase in defense — a 10-percent hike — and deep cuts to foreign aid and most domestic government programs.

“This budget will be a public safety and national security budget, very much based on those two,” he said, adding, “This is a landmark event, a message to the world, in these dangerous times, of American strength, security, and resolve … My budget also puts America first by keeping tax dollars in America to help veterans and first responders. So important.”
