In this Feb. 6, 2020 photo, dusk settles over the White House in Washington. Confronted with trillion-dollar-plus deficits, President Donald Trump is offering a budget plan on Monday that's offering a rehash of previously rejected spending cuts, while keeping a promise to leave Social Security and Medicare benefits untouched.
