The White House is defending proposed cuts to popular federal programs like Meals on Wheels amid President Donald Trump's taxpayer-funded trips to his Florida beach resort.

Spokesman Sean Spicer said that "where ever the president goes, (he) carries the apparatus of the White House."

Meals on Wheels, the popular service that provides food to the elderly, faces a sharp funding cut under Trump's budget proposal, drawing bipartisan criticism.

The exact amount of the cut is unknown, but budget director Mick Mulvaney says the government "can't spend money on programs just because they sound good."

Spicer says that there are "false narratives" being reported about the nature of budget cuts to the Meals on Wheels program.

He adds, "only in Washington" do people judge success "by how much money you throw at the problem."
