President Donald Trump will call for a substantial increase in military spending and look to safeguard Social Security and Medicare from any cuts in his first major step toward compiling a budget proposal for the coming year, reported to CNN agency with reference to a senior administration official.

The White House on Monday will issue the outlines of a budget proposal to federal agencies, a document that has largely been drafted by Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney, the official said.

The budget outline will also call for spending cuts to several federal agencies, including the Environmental Protection Agency.

The proposed cuts to agencies like the EPA also do not come as a surprise. Trump often railed against what he described as the agency's burdensome regulations and has vowed to slash regulations throughout the federal government, a plan he has argued would be an even bigger boon to US businesses than a tax cut -- which he also hopes to deliver on.

Earlier it was reported that Trump accused FBI of inability to stop information leaks. "They can’t even find the leakers within the FBI itself," Trump said.
