would have taken care of it. you don't pay $38 million, that's the dumbest thing i have ever heard. good grief that's off the rails. heather: that's what he thinks. president trump revealing first budget proposal laying out plans to deliver on campaign promises. >> one of the commitments i made is we are going to straighten out the whole situation for our veterans. we build a military so great that none will dare to challenge it. we will soon begin the construction of a great, great wall along our southern border. heather: so where exactly is the money going, here to break down the budget is the chair of business and finance at king's college in new york city, bryan, thank you for coming so early. >> great to be here. heather: budget losers, this is where cuts will be made.
education, 9.2, hud, 6.2, agriculture department and epa and state department 13.5 and 11 billion for other departments. so a lot of people taking a cut here. >> it's very broad-base cuts. some big cuts in a few department. the state department is a big one, education, health and human services. the president is asking every single agency, every single department almost to make a cut because he wants to shift money to homeland security and defense. heather: equal amount of cuts. >> they don't want to add for the deficit for next year. they want to make sure that increase is offset by a cut somewhere else and he's able to do that with this cut. heather: if he promised it on the campaign trail it is in this budget. >> you certainly can't argue, he's keeping promises here. everything he said he wants to do he's doing.
it's important to point out that this is a small portion of the budget. it's actually the skinny budget, it's only part of his budget, the full budget is going to come out in mid may, roughly 30% of federal spending. heather: let's take a look at some of the winners. the budget winners were the military spending and border wall and veterans affairs. >> yeah, the president has made clear he wants to move in the direction of hard power, he wants to build the military back up, it was cut as a percentage. heather: there are some republicans who wanted more. >> exactly. or one hand you have democrats saying, we don't want to boost military spending and you have republicans saying this isn't enough. he's trying to bring it back in line and he's able to do that with the budget. we will see. heather: no doubt, a lot. in terms of the state department and epa, those are the main ones people were talking about yesterday when this came out. do you think that those numbers
will change? >> you know every number is going to change here because this has to go through congress and every single program has a constituency who loves it. probably state department not going to be cut as much. both people on right or left, we shouldn't cut that much if we want president obama to the project ourselves effectively. heather: let's bring in brian kilmeade to see what is going on in "fox & friends". >> absolutely, i think the big news this year my green tie, last year i showed up half irish without anything green. that's the big news. other things that we have going on the president's budget is going to be front and center and the defense budget, that's brian -- go ahead.
dr. ezekiel emmanuel will be here. >> hi, everyone, happy st. patrick's day. you will get pinched. ainsley: i don't know if i will. brian: interesting. st. patty's day. where else can you do that? heather: lots of green. if you don't wear green today you get pinched. don't go away. we will be back to "fox & friends" right after this. ♪

jungle book and cinderella and the things i liked is dan stevens who is fen nominal as the beast. you probably know him from downton abby. he has a body suit with marker dots all the way around and performed the scenes with emma watson and they digitically create with that performance. i spoke to dan stevens and i was actually shock today know that he lowered his voice to become the beast. listen to his voice drop as he gives his answer. it's amazing, watch. >> what would a guy that's been
