The deal struck by Republican and Democratic leaders to fund the government through September 30 includes some of the increased defense spending Trump had requested but not funding for his wall along the Mexican border.
"The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there!" the president wrote on Twitter.
"One of his options was that we need to elect more Republicans in 2018 and I'm certainly for that", Blunt said.
WASHINGTON ― If the government shuts down in September, the White House is already saying it will be the Democrats' fault ― because they had the audacity to hurt President Donald Trump's feelings.
Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said the Senate would debate the funding bill this week and that most Republicans did not favor a change in the rules to make it easier to pass legislation without Democratic support.More news: Chinese-made Passenger Jet Takes Test Flight
"I think the President is frustrated with the fact that he negotiated in good faith with the Democrats and they went out to try and spike the football and make him look bad", Mulvaney said, presumably referring to Democrats' taunts that Trump got nearly nothing his White House budget advocated for. The agreement included cash for Democratic-favored items Planned Parenthood, meanwhile Trump was barred from the money he needed to start building his promised Mexican border wall.
Democrats have expressed satisfaction with the agreement, which keeps the government running to the end of September, the end of fiscal 2017.
"President Trump may not like what he sees in this budget deal, but it's unsafe and irresponsible to respond by calling for a shutdown".
And that cuts both ways - in the same poll, 69% said Democrats ought to be trying to compromise with Trump and not just resist the president's agenda.
Mr. Trump also touted the five-month spending-bill deal in a Rose Garden ceremony Tuesday honoring members of the Air Force Academy football team, describing it as an "under the radar" victory. "But to the extent that the president advocated for one today, if you want to imagine what a good shutdown was, it's one that fixes this town".More news: NBC reverses position, renews 'Timeless' for a second season
Trump could, if he wanted, refuse to sign the bill funding the government up to September, which is still being finalized in Congress.
"In the last 100 years, or the last 50 years, or the last 10 years, we (Republicans) have been in the minority more than we've been in the majority" said Blunt.
"I feel good about the wins we got with the administration in this bill", Ryan said.
Mulvaney tells reporters in a conference call Tuesday morning that, "the truth of the matter here is that what happened is the American people won and the president negotiated that victory for them".More news: Mother's love, the most unconditional love
