What impacts have you seen or concerns have you voiced over science under president Trump?

Flooding the job market: Impacts of cutting federal funding for science and freezing federal hiring.

I'm finishing my postdoc now and looking for jobs in the science industry. I'm extremely concerned, not only about the potential for further gutting of federal funding for science, but also about Trump's desire to freeze federal hiring, except in a few select health-related sectors. This will likely flush job applicants out of both academia and the federal government, and I'm extremely worried that I'll have reduced success finding a job because of these anti-science policies.
