Rachel Black wrote for CNN on the worst cuts in Trump's newly released budget:

The budget released today by President Donald Trump's administration makes clear that he assigns no value to the human cost of policy choices. 
As his framing message suggests, "To keep Americans safe, we have made tough choices that have been put off for too long." Choices, he says, made in the interest of fiscal responsibility. Fiscal responsibility is a good idea but not when the result is morally bankrupt. 
The egregiousness of the cuts he proposes can best be understood through the impact they would have on the access that millions of people would have to such a basic need: food.
