CGD Blog Post Discusses Potential Impact Of President Trump’s Proposed Budget On U.S. Foreign Aid Reform

Center for Global Development’s “U.S. Development Policy”: The Damage Already Done to the Foreign Assistance Budget
Scott Morris, senior fellow and director of the U.S. Development Policy Initiative at CGD, discusses President Donald Trump’s proposed budget and its potential impact on U.S. foreign aid reform, writing, “We will need those congressional champions of effective foreign aid and international engagement in the months ahead, both to walk back the ex ante budget slashing and to help guide the discussion back to sound reforms. But make no mistake, by putting forward the notion of an aid budget that is a third or more smaller, the president has already moved the baseline lower for any likely budget outcome this year and may very well have poisoned the well for honest reform efforts going forward” (3/2).
