President Donald Trump is planning to make major changes on student loans in his 2020 budget. According to the proposal, the White House wants to reduce the role of the federal government in higher education.
The Trump administration announced that it will cancel the $926 million awarded to the state of California as part of funding for a high-speed railway line from San Francisco to Los Angeles, and also demanded that the state returns an additional $2.5 billion that has already been spent on the project.
The White House has failed to agree with Democratic lawmakers on border wall funding. Analysts note that president Trump will have to make a tough and fateful choice on the wall if the shutdown is to be averted.
