Trump seeks to shrink cabinet agencies' budgets

WASHINGTON, Oct 17 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Wednesday said he will ask every cabinet secretary for proposals to cut their budgets 5 percent.

As a candidate in the 2016 presidential election, Trump pledged to slash government spending and regulation, and many fellow Republicans going into November congressional elections have picked up the theme in their own campaign promises. (Reporting by Steve Holland; Writing by Lisa Lambert)
