It IS cutting government spending

Here is the list that makes up the $1.3tn+

It is a work in progress - more government waste gets added to it all the time.

And I haven't even started on anything remotely controversial, like getting rid of FEMA, Dept of Ed, the other $300bn of OTT military/DHS spend etc.
That's in the next $500bn or so of government waste to be cut.
