    Mick Mulvaney, Budget Director, and Marc Short, Legislative Aide, are having a White House Briefing on the Schumer Shutdown.

    Today's Briefing Video.

    Not from today but another video on shutdown by the two men





    Mulvaney outlines some of the impact on various people and departments.

    OMB Director Mick Mulvaney says this government shutdown is not like the last one: "We were asked to vote for something in 2013 that we did not approve of. That is not the circumstance here"

    Marc Short expresses the desire of the White House to do something permanent (amnesty) for DACA recipients. He said that democrats objected to many of the immigration requests that the president put forward in September, the seven pages, so they revised the list down to three, dealing with four categories and removing some of the interior enforcement requests.


    Mitch McConnell scaled back date to Feb. 8 for CR so that democrats and republicans can work on permanent DACA amnesty.

    Following briefing:

    Mark Meadows is saying that we have till March and deportations would not take place for 3 months.

    White House budget chief speaks as government shutdown continues -- live updates

    January 20, 2018

    Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney is briefing reporters Saturday, as negotiations on Capitol Hill continue after a government shutdown went into effect at midnight.


    Mulvaney's office is responsible for implementing logistics in the shutdown. "In fact I found out for the first time last night that the person who technically shuts down the government is me, which is kind of cool," Mulvaney said on The Sean Hannity Show Friday. Marc Short, the White House legislative affairs director who spoke along with Mulvaney, said Democrats shut down the government because the Trump administration accomplished too much in its first year.


    "They look at the accomplishments of the last year, and all this administration has accomplished, and their reaction is, because we can't beat them, we're going to shut down the government," Short told reporters.



    Republicans are blaming Democrats for the shutdown, while Democrats are blaming Republicans. Mr. Trump has officially canceled his scheduled trip to Mar-a-Lago, where he was supposed to celebrate his first year in office with a party that cost $100,000 per couple to attend. "This is the One Year Anniversary of my Presidency and the Democrats wanted to give me a nice present. #DemocratShutdown," the president tweeted early Saturday morning.



    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-New York, blamed Mr. Trump in a Saturday afternoon press conference, saying the president kept shifting his positions on what he wanted out of a deal, and what he would agree to in the final hours before the shutdown.



    "Negotiating with this White House is like negotiating with Jell-O. It's impossible," Schumer said.



    Schumer said it's, "next to impossible to strike a deal with the president because he can't stick to the terms. I have found this out. Leader McConnell has found this out. Speaker Ryan has found this out."



    But Mulvaney, in the briefing, said Schumer wasn't entirely truthful in his depiction of conversations with the president, suggesting he wasn't willing to offer much border wall funding.



    In the morning, President Trump and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell spoke on the phone. The White House would support a three-week funding deal, shorter than the 30-day one it passed Thursday, but the impasse continues as Senate Democrats are opposed, CBS News Chief White House Correspondent Major Garrett reports. White House legislative affairs director Marc Short emphasized the White House will not negotiate on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (DACA) during a shutdown.


    "There is a deal out there to be made," House Freedom Caucus Chairman Mark Meadows, R-North Carolina, told CBSN Saturday afternoon. "I'm willing to engage. the president is willing to engage. All we need to do is open this government back up and get to a solution in the coming weeks."



    House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and other House Democrats held a post-caucus meeting press conference in the late morning, hours after the Senate failed to reach an agreement on government funding Friday night, triggering a partial shutdown.



    "He promised infrastructure, he gave us a train wreck," Pelosi said of President Trump, on the one-year anniversary of his inauguration.


    Republicans are trying to convince the Democratic counterparts, CBS News' Nancy Cordes reports, to agree to a three-week spending deal, instead of the previous 30-day proposal.



    But Democrats fear a slightly shorter spending agreement would make no difference. Congress has been divided on spending matters since Mr. Trump in September announced he would be ending DACA. The deadline set for "Dreamer" protections to end is March 5.


    A deal seemed possible last week, when Mr. Trump met with both Republicans and Democrats in congressional leadership at the White House. Mr. Trump said he would be open to a clean bill to fix DACA, then seemingly shifted his position shortly after, saying he wants border security funding and funding for the border wall to be a part of any immigration-related bill.



    Fast forward to the shutdown.



    Schumer said shortly after the shutdown began Saturday morning, and again Saturday afternoon, that he told the president he would even consider border wall funding on the table. A deal, Schumer said, seemed more possible. But then, according to Schumer, the president called him and said he heard Congress had reached a deal to fund the government for three weeks. It had not — the idea was merely that, an idea floated by a handful of Republicans. But then, Mr. Trump began adding more requirements for any such deal, Schumer said, making a spending deal less of a compromise and more of a capitulation to immigration hardliners.



    As of early Saturday afternoon, there is no tangible alternative proposal to fund the government.

    Republicans are holding a press conference. 3pm EST.

    Chastising Senator Schumer for putting 9 million children's healthcare at risk in the Schumer Shutdown.

    Military and readiness.

    One asking others to donate their pay while there is a shutdown.

    Marc Short expresses the desire of the White House to do something permanent (amnesty) for DACA recipients. He said that democrats objected to interior enforcement points the president put forward in the seven pages so they removed them, and submitted four main things, a smaller wish list of a few pages.
    art of the deal trump's campaign words are dog-do.....

    How can any American, let alone the democratic party politicians taking a salary paid for by citizens, object to interior enforcement to protect our citizens? They do not want to clean house but continue the demise of USA.

    General John Kelly takes credit for the 6 month extension of DACA. It is this bad counsel from Kelly to President Trump that has caused problems and contributed to the threats from democrats on DACA amnesty prior to March. It is a contributing factor in the Schumer shutdown.
