U.S. President Donald Trump’s proposal to slash funding for the State Department and foreign aid faces stiff opposition in Congress, which must pass any spending plan, not just from Democrats, but also from many of his fellow Republicans. Trump recently said that the USA has “fallen behind on nuclear weapon capacity” and that “we’re going to be at the top of the pack”.When counting all of its employees, from Foreign Service officers to local employees hired in embassies overseas, more than 75,000 people work for the State Department.
