Implied effect of Trump's budget to US public transportation, other than the EAS cut?

Other than the EAS cut as mentioned in the main forum there are apparently many other things there that would also affect various public transportation means in America, for instance train, rail, maritime or other mass transit options?

Well, even before the budget, 45 pretty much blocked the high-speed rail between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Modern transportation is important to the future of this nation. In routes like LAX-SFO, BOS-NYC, NYC-WAS, CHI-CLE, etc, where it makes no sense to use aircraft, we should be looking at high-speed rail and other possible future transportation programs, that reduce fuel consumption, and help the environment by using clean energy alternatives.

But the GOP is owned by big oil, and if big oil doesn't want it, the GOP will kill it, if they can. While nations like Germany and Denmark, among others, are advancing toward using only renewable energy as a power source, the U.S. lags behind, and is still caught in the mindset of "drill, baby, drill".
