“There really is a tweet for everything,” Pelosi tweeted Monday, quote tweeting Trump’s older message.

“Note: #TrumpBudget cuts health care funding, including Medicaid,” she added. 

Trump had promised to not touch the programs when he was on the campaign trail.


“I was the first & only potential GOP candidate to state there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare & Medicaid. [Mike] Huckabee copied me,” he had tweeted in 2015.

Trump’s proposed budget, released on Monday, would slash federal funding for Medicaid by $250 billion over the next 10 years, and also calls for the passage of a Senate Republican bill to repeal ObamaCare.

GOP lawmakers have repeatedly attempted to repeal ObamaCare since Trump took office. While unable to reverse the entire law, Republicans did repeal ObamaCare's individual mandate in their recently passed tax law.

Democrats have slammed Trump over the budget, claiming that it will hurt middle-class Americans.
