The impossible magic math of Trump’s budget proposal, explained
“On the one hand,” Hanlon said, “they’re saying it is not fully formed. On the other hand, they’re saying it will boost the economy by more than any mainstream economist would say is at the outer limit of what’s possible.”
According to Cole, “a tax plan that’s dynamically neutral wouldn’t be enough” to hit $2 trillion. “They have more tax revenue in this budget than the [Congressional Budget Office] has in its baseline,” he said. “They have a greater amount of taxes collected. And that is — quite something.”
Furman’s view: “This is not an accidental mistake. This is a mistake that happens to people that have a ludicrously optimistic view of the impact of tax cuts and also don’t bother to actually specify or work out any of the policy details.”
Trump's Budget Plan: The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly
It doesn't cut overall spending, it's based on gimmicks, but it does slash some programs.
In this sense, Trump's budget encapsulates his promise and peril as president. He is devoid of clearly articulated principles and there are many reasons to expect him to do real damage to the economy and the country.

No - only a stupid executive would allow such a blatant idiotacy. Stupid and incompetent.

Serious question, because I'm ignorant when it comes to this budget thing.
Everyone seems to be foaming at the mouth and knee-jerking, so I'm really curious what the actual implications are.
America is going broke?
Trump can't count?
Aliens are coming?
WHAT IS IT?!?!
