"The swamp"

Trump's budget:

President Trump will send a budget to Congress on Thursday that sharply reorders the nation’s priorities by spending billions of dollars on defending the southern border and bolstering the Pentagon while severely cutting funds for foreign aid, poverty programs and the environment. 
“You can’t drain the swamp and leave all of the people in it,” Mick Mulvaney, the White House’s budget director, said during a briefing on Wednesday.
During the campaign, "the swamp" were lobbyists for the wealthy and powerful. Now "the swamp" are people who drive meals on wheels trucks and researchers who are trying to cure cancer. MAGA!
