Mick Mulvaney: Budget is a Major Win for Trump, Not Dems

Mulvaney cast the Congressional budget deal that funded the government as a major win for President Trump and not Congressional Democrats.

Director of the Office of Budget Management Mick Mulvaney cast the Congressional budget deal that funded the government as a major win for President Trump and not Congressional Democrats.

“[Democrats] wanted a shutdown,” Mulvaney said. “They were desperate to make this administration look like we couldn’t function, like we couldn’t govern.”

“We know that a large part of their base, especially their left wing base, wanted a shut down and certainly didn’t want them to cut a deal with us. That’s why I think you’re seeing them crowing about their success – [it] is in order to cover up the fact that they actually cut a deal with President Trump,” Mulvaney said.

“The president delivered on his promises and got his priorities funded and that’s what the Democrats don’t want you to know.”

Mulvaney cited increased spending on defense, border security, and school choice as examples of victories for the president.
