Trump’s budget chief says shutdown could last more than a week

Greg Nash

Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney on Sunday predicted that the government shutdown could last more than a week.

“I think Democrats want to see the president give the State of the Union under a shutdown,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.”

Mulvaney said Democrats want to hurt President Trump by keeping the government closed.

He also said, however, that negotiations are continuing on ending the shutdown and “there’s a chance it gets solved before Monday.”

Trump’s first State of the Union is scheduled for Jan. 30.
