Will Trump Eliminate the National Endowment of the Arts?

The NEA’s $146 million budget represents just 0.012% (about one one-hundredth of one percent) of federal discretionary spending. The NEA has already sustained significant budget reductions. The NEA appropriation is 14% lower than it was in 2010, a decline of $21.5 million.

The inauguration cost taxpayers $200 million dollars, but the NEA’s budget is $146 million. I’m not Trump bashing here, but this seems ridiculous! 54 million dollars more was spent on a one day party then is allocated to the Arts for the entire year?

Also on the chopping block are the National Endowment for the Humanities and privatization for Public Broadcasting.
