When pressed about the unorthodox math in a briefing with reporters on Monday, White House budget director Mick Mulvaney seemed to admit, effectively, that his team had made up the numbers because they wanted them to look good, and they’d figure out the details later .
Details of President Trump’s first budget have now been released. Much can and will be said about the dire social consequences of what is in it and the ludicrously optimistic economic assumptions it embodies. My observation is that there appears to be a logical error of the kind that would justify failing a student in an introductory economics course.

It all comes down to this simple question...would you rather get screwed out of 2 trillion by mistake or by design? Because no matter what Admin is in charge we are getting screwed out of trillions.

The linked article doesn't say where in the budget proposal the error is. Here is the actual 2018 budget proposal. I scanned it over and saw no glaring errors. Somebody want to exceed NBC in the area of journalistic excellence and point our where this error is?
I'd appreciate it. I might have missed something.
