President Donald Trump is in the middle of his 9-day foreign trip. But the big news here in Washington on Tuesday was the release of his budget blueprint — the administration’s wish list heading into the next fiscal year. It landed with a thud — as Republicans largely avoided even talking about it and Democrats threw it in the trash. Literally.

Stan’s Twitter handle is @thebudgetguy. I rest my case.) Our conversation, conducted via email and lightly edited for flow, is below.
