President Donald Trump's budget will be released next week, during his first foreign trip as president which begins Friday, Reuters reports.

Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, announced in a speech to the Federalist Society Thursday that OMB will release the blueprint to Trump's budget plan next week.

Although the OMB does most of the work releasing the document, the president typically acts as a prominent spokesperson.

"The process usually goes from the State of the Union to the budget rollout, where you try to build political support for the president's agenda," Firehouse Strategies' Alex Conant, a former staffer at OMB and the presidential campaign of Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., told The Hill.

American Action Forum president and former director of the Congressional Budget Office Doug Holtz-Eakin told The Hill that the White House might be making the correct decision to release the plan without Trump.

"The truth is, I believe that it's actually the right thing to do broadly," he said before referring to Trump's predecessors.

"I thought Barack Obama and, before that, George W. Bush put their face on issues too much. Let your Cabinet secretaries take control of the issues, and if they don't work out, fire them."
