President Trump will seek to boost defense spending by $34 billion and slash welfare programs in a budget the White House plans to propose Monday.

Trump wants to up Pentagon spending to $750 billion and put in place strict new requirements for welfare recipients, according to the Associated Press and other reports.

He’s also going to ask for border-wall funding and money to establish his proposed Space Force branch of the military.

“Obviously we’re going to disregard it,” Rep. John Yarmuth (D-Kentucky), chairman of the House Budget Committee, told the Washington Post.
