White House proposing deep cuts to NOAA, destroying jobs, not creating them

The Donald, who promised often during his campaign that he would create jobs, has proposed deep cuts (up to 18%) to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration and would eliminate funding for smaller programs, one which seeks to bolster coastal areas to withstand rising seas.

NOAA's satellite division would lose $513 million.  NOAA relies on data from its satellites to predict and track serious weather, such as hurricanes and tornadoes, to warn people of danger.

Another cut would eliminate a coastal research program that is conducted through thirty-three universities across the country.  Many of those universities are in states that went for The Donald in the election, such as Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio, Florida and North Carolina.

Cuts like these are certain to eliminate jobs as well.  Didn't The Donald promise to create jobs?  Am I mistaken?  Trumpsters?
