In a recent article in the Washington Post, The Washington Post’s political reporter Andrew Taylor, who has covered the Trump administration for many years, described how Trump’s administration is taking a much-needed approach to food.
“While the president and the White House have repeatedly promised to overhaul the food system, they are instead moving toward a plan to replace it with a healthier version of what it used to be,” Taylor wrote.
“With a new emphasis on plant-based foods, Trump’s proposed budget proposal would make healthy foods available to the public through the Department of Agriculture, while making them available through a public health initiative.
The plan would also put Americans on the front lines of food research and development, a move that would help farmers who are struggling with the effects of climate change, hunger, and other societal challenges.
But Taylor did not provide specific details about the USDA proposal, other than to say it would “reduce the amount of federal money that goes to the agency by 20 percent.”
He said it would create a “public health program that would focus on promoting plant- and fruit-based nutrition through education, research, and advocacy.”
The USDA’s Food Nutrition and Dietary Supplements Program would be merged into the Department’s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, which Taylor described as a “top-tier USDA food safety agency.”
He wrote that the USDA would be focused on research, nutrition education, and market-based approaches to reducing the consumption of saturated fats and sugars, as well as limiting the amount and type of processed food Americans eat.”
He added that the new USDA proposal would be “a welcome change” that “will not replace the public health and safety measures already in place for this industry, but will strengthen those already in effect.””
However, we are working to expand its scope and the scope of the food that is available to Americans through the government, including through the food safety program that is currently in place.”
He added that the new USDA proposal would be “a welcome change” that “will not replace the public health and safety measures already in place for this industry, but will strengthen those already in effect.”
He explained that the Trump plan would require food manufacturers to label products that use “natural and organic ingredients,” which will be mandatory in all foods manufactured by the U.S. Department of Energy, the Department in charge of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
“In other words, the plan will mandate that all products that have a natural or organic label be made from plants,” Taylor told The Washington Times.
“The label will include a statement like ‘made from plants,’ ‘made in the U., USDA-certified organic,’ and so forth.”
He also noted that the proposed changes to the food aid program would require all food companies to spend at least 20 percent of their food budget on marketing their products, which is expected to result in the creation of “an army of lobbyists and special interest groups.”
In addition to mandating labels, the proposal would also require that food companies provide consumers with information on the amount per serving of any of the foods they are manufacturing and sell to the general public.
The proposal also requires food companies that sell to Americans to provide their suppliers with an updated list of ingredients, which would be required to be shared with consumers.
Taylor also said the proposed plan would provide the USDA with additional funds to help manufacturers with plant- based products, such as organic vegetables.
“The goal of this budget proposal is to help the USDA create a new crop insurance program that could help reduce the costs of growing plants for food and agriculture,” he said.
The Trump administration has been struggling to convince Congress to fund its proposed budget.
It has proposed to cut food aid by more than $100 billion, and it is considering the sale of $1 trillion in surplus military aid to Europe.
Trump’s proposed cuts to the USDA food aid programs have been met with fierce opposition from industry and agriculture groups, who argue the cuts would cause the government to lose billions in subsidies and would increase food prices.
The proposed cuts also have been seen as a way to force Trump to scrap the Trans-Pacific Partnership, which he opposes, and a proposed “fiscal cliff” that could push Congress to cut spending and tax rates for the rest of the year.
In addition, the White, House Office of Management and Budget has suggested that the $1.9 trillion in deficit reduction spending proposed by the White and the Treasury Department could be eliminated by cutting the USDA’s budget by 25 percent.
