President Trump on Monday sent a record $4.75 trillion 2020 budget proposal to Congress, in which he called for a 5% increase in military spending, a $1.9 trillion cut to safety net programs and an additional $8.6 billion for his border wall.

Why it matters: Trump's budget won't balance for 15 years, and Capitol Hill will promptly reject this budget, as it does every year with every president. But the proposal nonetheless highlights the White House's priorities for 2020.

By the numbers: Trump's budget, the largest in history, would make cuts to the following programs and departments ...

  • Agriculture Department: -14.8%
  • State Department and other international programs: -23.3%
  • Interior Department: -11%
  • Education Department: -12%
  • Justice Department: -2.3%
  • Energy Department: -10.8%
  • Labor Department: -9.7%
  • Health and Human Services: -12%
  • Transportation Department: -21.5%
  • Environmental Protection Agency: -31%
  • Social Security Administration: -3.5%
  • Medicaid: $1.5 trillion in cuts over 10 years
  • Medicare: $845 billion in cuts over 10 years

These departments and programs would receive increases in funding ...

  • Commerce Department: +0.4%
  • National Nuclear Security Administration: +8.9%
  • Department of Homeland Security: +7.4%
  • Treasury Department: +1.5%
  • Veteran Affairs: +7.5%
  • NASA: +1.4%

The Rockefeller Foundation announced on Monday that it will allocate $1 billion over the next three years to address the pandemic and its aftermath.

Why it matters: The mishandled pandemic and the effects of climate change threaten to reverse global progress and push more than 100 million people into poverty around the world. Governments and big NGOs need to ensure that the COVID-19 recovery reaches everyone who needs it.

Fox News President Jay Wallace and anchors Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum are among those recommended to get tested and quarantine after possible exposure to COVID-19, the New York Times first reported Sunday night.

The big picture: The Fox News contingent, which also included "The Five" show hosts Juan Williams and Dana Perino, were on a charter flight from Nashville to New York following Thursday's presidential debate with a person who later tested positive for the coronavirus.
