President Donald Trump will send his first federal budget to Congress today. The proposal is expected to call for deep cuts in domestic programs and a significant increase in military spending.

But as it does every year, the Congressional Black Caucus is offering an alternative budget. Rep. Bobby Scott joined Roland Martin on NewsOne Now to discuss the drastic differences between the priorities set under Trump’s budget versus those detailed in the CBC’s alternative budget.

• Are you tired of visiting the same old beaches and resorts? Dayvee Sutton, a two-time Emmy Award-winning sports journalist who left her high-profile sports anchor job to travel the world joined Roland Maritn on NewsOne Now to talk about her new digital adventure travel series, “Beyond the Usual.”
