Trump Administration

At the time this course was written, WhiteHouse.gov had no official policy on changes to Social Security.

During a briefing of the FY2018 Presidential Budget, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney made clear that the White House would not be making any changes to OASI:

[We] do not touch mainline Social Security, and we do not touch Medicare in this program…[The President] said, ‘I promised people on the campaign trail I would not touch their retirement, and I would not touch Medicaid.’ And we don’t do it. I honestly was surprised that we could balance the budget without changing those programs, but we manage to do that.
