Trump’s budget would slash support for low-income students

But there’s only one candidate who’s already in the White House – Donald Trump – and this week he released his plan in the form of a proposed education budget for fiscal year 2021. If Congress were to approve it, some higher education experts say, low-income students would be so financially squeezed that college might be out of reach.
