On March 16th, the Trump administration took its first step toward achieving Mr Bannon’s vision by proposing a budget that makes steep cuts to domestic programmes.

Hi everyone! how to interpret the bold part? I know the meaning of the words each but fail to make clear the phrase as a whole.

    This is one of the promises of Trump during the election, he wants to lower the bureaucracy, amount of people in government agencies and so on

    (also more far-reaching he wants to end the power of 'administration' over the 'people')
