President Donald Trump released his second budget Monday, seeking to bolster military spending and requesting funds for infrastructure, construction of a wall along the border with Mexico and opioid treatment programs.Presidential budgets are often ignored by the U.S. Congress, which controls federal purse strings.Trump's budget request goes to Congress only days after Trump signed off on a bipartisan spending agreement by lawmakers that will increase domestic spending by $300 billion over two years -- including $165 billion in new defense spending and $131 billion in non-military domestic spending.
