Asked about whether Trump rejecting a bipartisan immigration deal and reportedly calling certain nations "s--hole" countries set back funding talks, Mulvaney argued that "there's no way" Trump should take the blame for a shutdown. "I mean, the problems start from the top and have to get solved from the top", Trump said on Fox News during the 2013 shutdown, when President Barack Obama was in office.
The bill passed in the House on a largely party-line vote, boding an ominous omen for the Senate vote as 60 yays are needed to pass bill.
"I know that", Acosta said.
Mulvaney, who was joined by White House legislative affairs director Marc Short, said that Democrats are opposing a short-term spending bill that they normally would support, noting that it's technically a "clean" bill that includes an extension to the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) - for six years - and some support the delay in some Obamacare taxes.
Mulvaney said that if the government shuts down, the effects will be different than the repercussions seen during the 16-day shutdown in October 2013. But again we're planing for it as if it's 100 percent.

"We'd like to keep the government open". The parks will be open; they weren't before.
Both officials dismissed the idea that President Trump hasn't shown leadership in trying to get a deal on immigration and government funding.
Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget, said Friday that the Trump administration has informed federal agencies on Friday to prepare to enact contingency plans in the event of a shutdown.
Congressional Democrats and Republicans are now in a standoff over the future of government funding and immigration policy for DACA Dreamers.
Senate Democrats are almost united in opposition to the short-term spending bill passed in the House Thursday because it does not offer protections for the "Dreamers", the term for immigrants brought to the USA illegally as children who were shielded from deportation under President Barack Obama's 2012 DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals) executive order. The Senate has until midnight Friday to pass the spending bill to avoid government shutdown.
