White House chief of staff Reince Priebus on Sunday dismissed the importance of President Donald Trump's first 100 days in office as a deadline for fulfilling his campaign pledge to repeal and replace Obamacare.

In an interview on NBC News' "Meet The Press," Priebus said he hopes for a vote on a new GOP health care plan this week, but insists, "It's a marathon, not a sprint."

"I would like to have a vote this week, but on Monday, we'll still be here working for the American people, whether or not a healthcare repeal and replace comes on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday."

"We're hopeful for this week, but it doesn't have to happen to define our success," he added.

Priebus also said he was confident there would be "enough money" in a funding resolution this month to "move forward" with the building of a wall across the nation's southwest border, another of Trump's signature campaign promises.

"We expect the priorities to be reflective" in the funding bill, he said.

"We expect a massive increase in military spending. We expect money for border security in this bill, and there ought to be. As long as the president's priorities are reflected, and the rebuilding of our military, and there is enough as far as flexibility for the border wall and border security, I think we're okay with that."
