The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a fiscally-hawkish think-tank, reckons this alone will cost about $2.5 trillion over a decade, before accounting for the growth it might generate.

The Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget estimates that Trump’s proposals would be revenue-neutral only if the economy grew by at least 10 percent per year (unheard of levels in our country in the last 60 years) or the budget were cut by 40 to 80 percent. Those cuts would have to include entitlements and the military.
