Trump says U.S. govnt "needs a good shutdown"

Trump says U.S. govnt "needs a good shutdown"President Donald Trump declared Tuesday the U.S. government "needs a good shutdown" this fall to fix a "mess" in the Senate, signaling on Twitter his displeasure with a bill to keep operations running.

This is reported by The Associated Press.

Trump and his allies issued a flurry of contradictory statements ahead of key votes in Congress on a $1.1 trillion spending bill to keep the government at full speed through September. After advocating for a future shutdown, the president hailed the budget agreement as a boost for the military, border security and other top priorities.

Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Trump was "frustrated with the fact that he negotiated in good faith with the Democrats and they went out and tried to spike the football to make him look bad."

Asked how the president would define a "good shutdown," Mulvaney suggested, "it would be one that fixes this town."
