The director of the Office of Management and Budget says President Donald Trump's budget "blueprint" will be submitted to Congress on March 16.

Mick Mulvaney told reporters Monday that the full budget will be ready in May. He says the preliminary budget will represent "topline numbers only."

He said that the blueprint prioritizes rebuilding the military, securing the border, enforcing laws currently on the books and taking care of veterans.

Mulvaney says that the preliminary budget also "eliminates programs that simply don't work."

He says that money for the border wall with Mexico will be included "in a future supplemental" budget.
