Remember that until October, we’re still living on Obama money. He owns this hurricane and the resources available to it. The upcoming Trump budget, then, will give us a good idea of how the new president plans to make his “investment in our future,” because that’s literally what it is. Mr. Trump’s 2018 budget blueprint, literally titled “America First: A budget blueprint to make America great again,” thrashes disaster relief funding. He proposed cutting FEMA state and local funds by $667 million. That of course includes response and relief to weather-related disasters, but it also cuts state and local counterterrorism funds. In New York Fucking City, for instance, where the threat of terrorist attack is fairly high, I’d wager.
