Trump announces new $100 million pill fund, $50 million for cancer research

President Donald Trump on Monday announced the creation of a new $1 billion fund to help combat cancer, and the President is doubling down on a campaign promise to create a $50 billion fund for the health of American workers.

The Trump administration has long touted its commitment to combating cancer, which the president has cited as a reason he is seeking a $1 trillion boost to the nation’s health care program.

But the president’s budget for 2018 proposes an additional $50.5 billion to combat the disease, which has claimed more than 200,000 lives and forced many Americans to undergo radiation treatments.

While the president said Monday that his $1.9 trillion plan is aimed at improving the health and well-being of the American people, the new proposal is more modest.

It includes $500 million to provide grants to state and local governments for cancer treatment, $500 for research and development to find drugs and devices that may be more effective, $1 million to establish a cancer center to help treat people with advanced cancer and $250 million for research to improve the quality of life for people with cancer.

The plan is also a more modest $1 for every dollar spent, according to a White House statement.

The money is part of the president�s $1 Trumps Tax Relief, Growth, and Jobs Act, which would give a $10.10 refundable tax credit for individuals making up to $10 million a year.

That would help offset the cost of the tax cut for many middle-class families.

The $50 bill includes $20 billion for medical research, $20 million for new research to develop new drugs and treatments, $10 billion for research into new treatments and diagnostics, and $1,000 to fight childhood obesity, according the White House.

The new fund is expected to be released later this month.
