Budget Director Mick Mulvaney is insisting the budget deal that will keep the government running until September is a win for the White House, despite complaints from President Trump.
The agreement was struck late Sunday after weeks of tense negotiations fueled the threat of a government shutdown just as Trump was marking his 100th day in office. There's no money for the wall on the U.S. -Mexico border that he's been calling for since his stint on the campaign trail, and stipulations about blocking new grant funding for sanctuary cities aren't included.

"And believe me, the entire world is watching. and we have resolve like never, ever before". Asked to explain Trump's advocacy for a shutdown, Mulvaney said, "Right now I'm not anxious about September, I'm anxious about this deal that's in front of us".
