"We hope he learned his lesson", they said.
The budget proposal calls for a 23 per cent decrease for the State Department and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).
President Donald Trump's 2020 budget seeks a return to what the administration calls "fiscal sanity", cutting spending while focusing federal funding on defense and the U.S. -Mexico border.
"To me this is a very, very sexy subject", Mr. Trump said in February of previous year when he proposed his budget.
Veterans Affairs medical care requirements would get $80.2 billion under the Trump 2020 budget. The new budget frames the issue of wall construction as a project to be finished by a president who is getting the job done. But with Democrats in charge of the House, the plan is going nowhere on Capitol Hill.
Kudlow said daily negotiations between USA and Chinese officials have been progressing following face-to-face talks in Washington roughly two weeks ago, after which Trump extended a March 1 deadline for increasing US tariffs on $200 billion in Chinese goods.
The administration has not estimated how far the 2019 funds will go, but officials said average costs are about $25 million per mile (1.6 km). "I think it's exactly the right prescription", he said. The new proposal comes as the House is in Democratic hands and even congressional Republicans have largely turned their attention away from dismantling the ACA.
He says the budget will contain a proposed 5 percent across-the-board reduction in domestic spending.
The President's $USD4.7 trillion ($AUD6.7 trillion) blueprint for the fiscal year starting on October 1 also revisits the political fight over border wall funding that triggered this past winter's partial government shutdown.
The White House request represents the first marker in what's certain to be another protracted battle between the Trump administration and congressional negotiators - particularly Democrats who hold the majority in the House. While Trump has called for boosting the military, cutting taxes, and cutting the budgets of domestic agencies and social welfare programs, numerous Democrats have proposed something much different. Lawmakers have previously rebuffed Trump's calls to cut funding for federal environmental and transportation programs - just as they ignored many of President Barack Obama's spending priorities.
In a joint statement, Ms Pelosi and Mr Schumer charged that Mr Trump "hurt millions of Americans and caused widespread chaos when he recklessly shut down the government to try to get his expensive and ineffective wall".
One senior administration official said the $8.6 billion in additional funding, combined with the money Trump is attempting to redirect through a national emergency declaration, would allow the White House to complete at least 722 miles of new barriers - a figure that long has been a White House goal.
The Washington Post reported that the president's request for wall funding will come in the form of $5 billion from the Homeland Security Department and $3.6 billion from the Pentagon. They said the money "would be better spent on rebuilding America". It also emphasizes the White House's desire to reform the 340B drug discount program, reducing payments to hospitals that provide little charity care and requiring that covered providers submit reports about their use of program savings.
The Democratic-controlled House voted last month by 245-to-182 to nullify Mr Trump's emergency declaration.
The increasingly ambitious cuts to Medicare in the White House budget reflect the administration's narrowing budget math, as the federal deficit has continued to balloon under its watch. And even though they have proposed budget cuts before, only to be rejected by Congress, his top advisers want to dig in on the cuts this year, convinced Americans will support them.
