The President had the follow Tweets he offered up...

There's a lot to wade through - far more that can occur in this daily tracking update of Trump's activities but my first takeaway is that there were actually 18 different Government programs that have funding revoked in his budget. I wish it were more like 180 but it's the first time I've seen actual elimination of non-essential federal bureaucracy in a budget proposal.
- Held a meeting with Irish officials and addressed the annual St. Patrick's Day reception
