Donald Trump’s budget director Mick Mulvaney would like to eliminate, through a series of sweeping cuts to the federal budget or the wholesale elimination of certain agencies: funding for Meals on Wheels, the basic functioning of the Environmental Protection Agency, “America’s Test Kitchen,” legal assistance for low-income people, work support for poor seniors, climate change prevention programs run through the State Department, and most of the federal government that isn’t the military.
He will also eliminate the White House if we work very hard together.
There is right now, on April 13 in the Year of Our Lord 2017, a survey on the White House website asking each of us to help Mulvaney in “reorganizing the executive branch.” One of the options of agencies to cut, as pointed out by Twitter user Waldo Jaquith, is the White House itself.

Melania Trump, at the very least, will thank you.
