President Trump plans on cutting back the government by dispensing with pointless organizations and representatives and by trimming consumption to more reasonable levels.
It appears that both the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the National Endowments for the Arts and Humanities will be finished under the new budget proposal.
But, defunding the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is unlikely to cripple either PBS or NPR. Washington Post reported data showing that NPR received less than 1 percent of its revenue from the CPB, and PBS less than 7 percent.
As The Wrap reports, Trump’s budget would be out of the $ 445 million budget for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
The budget will also cut budgets for both national endowments, which stood at $ 148 million each in 2016, as well as $ 230 million for the Institute of Museum and Library Services, which supports libraries and museums.
Furthermore, additional cuts will affect two tourist mainstays in Washington, DC, the Smithsonian Institution and the National Gallery of Art.
The four art organizations account for less than 0.02 percent of the U.S. Government’s $ 3.9 trillion budget.
Apparently, public broadcasting and the arts and humanities will have to collect help from private residents. That shouldn’t be very hard.
