Massive cuts to HUD budget, Huntsman tapped as ambassador to Russia and Trump’s new travel ban


In President Trump’s proposed budget, the Department of Housing and Urban Development could lose $6 billion and would cut housing and meal assistance. The State Department’s budget could be cut by 37 percent. Former Ambassador to China and Utah Gov. Jon Huntstman, a notable Trump critic during the campaign, has been tapped by the president as the new ambassador to Russia. Plus, Trump issued a new executive order banning travel from six majority-Muslim countries, an order that is already being challenged in federal court.
