5 Agencies and Programs Trump wants to Defund (POLL)
1. United States Institute of Peace
Many people are afraid of how President Trump would face a situation where war may be a possible outcome, and by stating that he wants to defund an institute dedicated to non-violence and prevention of deadly conflict, he isn't helping his case.
2. National Endowment for the Arts
The National Endowment for the Arts agency is an independent agency of the United States federal government that offers support and funding for projects showing artistic excellence. This is a worst case scenario for arts groups such as PBS.
3. Institute of Museum and Library Services
Institute of Museum and Library Services is an agency that supports libraries and museums of all types. Defunding them would be a major loss to both youth and adults across the country by denying them access to learn.
4. Corporation for Public Broadcasting
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting is an American non-profit corporation created by an act of the United States Congress and funded by the United States federal government to promote and help support public broadcasting. This includes stations like PBS, who has massive fundraisers to support their channel even before Trump wanted to defund the corporation.
5. NASA Office of Education
The NASA Office of Education supports the work of the Mission Directorates by coordinating projects for students, faculty, and institutions that broaden the base of those who compete for NASA research awards. These efforts will help create and sustain the scientific and engineering workforce of the future. Trump will fail all future scientists if he defunds this program.
