Donald Trump is expected to make his first address to Congress today, outlining priorities including a big hike in military spending at the expense of foreign aid and environmental programs.

On Monday, the White House announced that Trump is seeking to boost defense spending by 10%  in his proposed budget plan for 2018. The blueprint will increase defence spending by $54bn but seeks to recoup that sum through deep cuts elsewhere, from State Department to other federal agencies, including foreign aid.
