Well, that's going to be interesting.
...they cut NASA's budget
...cut spending on the sciences
...lack of support for the sciences
...more difficult for foreign engineers and scientists to enter the US as the work force...
There's going to have to be a huge cultural change in Congress before we get the support we need to get people to Mars or the Moon. At this point, I think another country (possibly India, possibly Europe, maybe Russia or China) will beat us to the goal.
Looks like a faith based mission.
Who needs science when you already have really YUUUGE rockets? Point and fire.

Actually, that's kind of a given for space missions now. An astronaut is trained in basic medical treatment like an EMT, and common medicines are available in first-aid kits. You might have 1 or 2 astronauts on a typical mission of 5 or 6 who are not qualified in medical care, but that's it.

There IS a way to fix those problems, we

The end of the world doesn't have to mean the end of mankind. CGI and interviews with experts explore how we could leave the Earth.
In a doomsday scenario, the race is on to escape annihilation. If we had 75 years warning, would humankind be capable of evacuating the planet? This programme examines how you could flee your home habitat: from building a 25km-long spaceship capable of travelling trillions of kilometres to deciding which unlucky souls get left behind. Go with National Geographic Channel on a mission to Evacuate Earth.

Trump Administration Seeks Big Budget Cuts for Climate Research
The administration is seeking a nearly 20 percent cut to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's budget, including to its satellite division...
...That's on top of proposed reductions to climate research at U.S. EPA, including a 40 percent cut to the Office of Research and Development, which runs much of EPA's major research. The cuts specify work on climate change, air and water quality, and chemical safety. The Trump administration also has proposed 20 percent staffing reduction at EPA.
More than a dozen federal agencies, including the U.S. Geological Survey, the Interior Department and the Department of Energy, conduct climate research. Further cuts are expected, particularly at NASA
...The targeting of climate science goes beyond the work of NOAA and EPA. The Earth Science Division of NASA is another expected target.
The administration and congressional Republicans have already spoken about removing or replacing climate research at other federal agencies, as well.
