President Donald Trump's Executive Office has released his newly proposed budget blueprint outline for the fiscal year 2018.

Titled "America First: A Budget Blueprint to Make America Great Again," the document was made public on Thursday courtesy the Office of Management and Budget.

"While recognizing this Blueprint is not the full Federal budget, it does provide lawmakers and the public with a view of the priorities of the President and his Administration," wrote OMB Director Mick Mulvaney in the introduction.

"This 2018 Budget Blueprint will not add to the deficit. It has been crafted much the same way any American family creates its own budget while paying bills around their kitchen table; it makes hard choices."

Here are five interesting takeaways from the budget blueprint, specifically how certain federal entities will receive hefty cuts while other programs will receive large increases.
