The White House is set to release President Donald Trump's first full budget Tuesday, a plan that will include a cut of more than $800 billion from the Medicaid program for the poor and reductions in other social spending.It is unlikely that Congress, which passes its own budgets and appropriates public money, would approve a raft of cuts to social programs.Budget expert Robert Greenstein said it would be a mistake to write off Trump's budget as completely "dead on arrival" in Congress.The budget is being delivered as the White House deals with the political fallout from Trump's firing of former FBI Director James Comey two weeks ago.
