President Donald Trump’s budget assumes a greater rate of economic growth than the plan from House Republicans, who are led by House Speaker Paul Ryan, right.

House Republicans’ budget plan would boost defense spending by more than President Donald Trump’s proposal, but would cut domestic spending by less than he would while also assuming lower economic growth.

Released Tuesday, the House blueprint rejects Trump’s proposed $54 billion in nondefense spending cuts and instead slashes that category by just $5 billion.

On the defense side, the House plan released by Budget Chairwoman Diane Black of Tennessee would increase spending by $72 billion, $18 billion above Trump’s request.
