Trump plan to cut trillions of dollars from social programmes defended



US budget director Mick Mulvaney has defended plans to cut trillions of dollars from social programmes over the next decade. He says President Donald Trump's proposals are morally justified and will increase economic growth.

The US government plans to boost spending on the military, but will impose significant cuts in other areas, including food stamps, medical care and education.
