Trump calls budget deal a "clear win" for his policy goals

Patient advocacy groups, including the American Heart Association and American Diabetes Association, also oppose the reworked bill, while the American Medical Association and others have expressed concerns.

President Trump is getting a lesson in civics, Democrats say.

"Here we saw Democrats and Republicans working together in the best traditions of the Senate, and the president disparages it in a way that's destructive", Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer said.

After Trump's fellow Republicans in Congress jettisoned his promise to build a border wall and cut environmental spending, the embattled resident lashed out, saying maybe the government should not be funded at all.

While leaving that conference, reporters asked House Majority Whip Steve Scalise about the current vote count. Yet now that they're in charge of Congress and the White House, they're touting a plan that allows legislative branch spending to grow more than the rest of the budget. Democrats agreed, for example, to $1.5 billion in new money for border security and roughly $21 billion in new defense spending, two of Trump's top priorities. His call for an end to the legislative filibuster in the Senate and for a "good shutdown" was the result of "frustration", said his White House budget director Mick Mulvaney.

Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said he is "shocked" by the behavior of lawmakers who are celebrating slowing down its construction.

Democrats said Trump's actions ensured that partisan rancor would continue to hang over Capitol Hill in the coming months. Leaving Washington whipsawed, Trump hours later praised the spending bill as a major accomplishment.

"I do wish somebody would take his iPhone away from him", Republican Sen. Ryan said "I am not even going to venture to guess" whether such battles might generate a shutdown, though Republicans were surprised by Trump's tweets and view the prospect of a shutdown as a political loser for them.

"The (budget deal) does not fund President Trump's immoral and unwise border wall or create a cruel new deportation force", House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said Sunday in a statement. "Democrats and Republicans in the House and Senate were closer to one another than Republicans were to Donald Trump".

But with his healthcare reform effort flagging, Trump has been unable to get a major piece of legislation through a U.S. Congress controlled by his own Republican Party, leaving him without a signature victory.

"Our country needs a good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!" he wrote on Twitter.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., said Monday the vote would happen when enough members support the bill for passage.

Mulvaney is citing a $15 billion infusion of defense spending - about half of what Trump asked for in March - as a huge win for the White House, among other measures.

Trump complained about the budget deal in a pair of tweets earlier Tuesday and called for a "good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!"

MULVANEY: Oh. All right, let's try this.

Upton's conversion was especially significant because he's a respected, centrist voice on health issues and former chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.

But with all Democrats expected to vote no on the plan, and a prominent Republican announcing his opposition Tuesday, those advances were in jeopardy. "The Democrats walked out of the room and said they protected the miners' health. We're convinced we've got the votes, and we're going to keep moving on with our agenda".

Despite lining up support from many Freedom Caucus members since then, GOP leaders have had to deal with the fact that changes to health-care law that make conservatives happy often makes moderates unhappy. Changes to the bill have won over conservatives, but moderates are reluctant to back the measure. He added that we "either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51 (percent)".

Things we learned from Trump's 100-day interview
According to Donald Trump, Kim Jong-un took the regime at a very young age and the job gave him a lot to take. Nineteen percent of Trump voters asserted they were undecided in which party they planned to support in 2018.

His Tuesday tweets about Senate procedures came after Senate Republicans recently triggered the "nuclear option" to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster threshold for confirming Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch. That change allowed the Senate to hold a final vote to approve Gorsuch with a simple majority, an approach that has not been used for legislation.
