Acosta asked, “How can it be the Schumer Shutdown when Republicans control the White House, the House and the Senate?” Mulvaney responded, “Come on, you know the answer to that as well as anybody. I laugh when people say that… you know as well as anybody that it takes 60 votes in the Senate… you know that?”
Acosta timidly acknowledged that he did, in fact, claim to know what Mulvaney was referring to before re-phrasing his question. “The president asked Congress to come up with a solution for the Dreamers. Congress was in the room, members of Congress were in the room with the president last week, seemed to be a fairly productive meeting, and the whole process got blown up,” Acosta said. “It seems like the whole process was blown up by the president’s comment.”
Mulvaney tried to respond as Acosta spoke over him for a few seconds. The OMB director eventually stated that Democrats want Trump to be blamed for the shutdown. “This is purely an attempt by the Senate Democrats, led by Mr. Schumer -- that’s why we call it the Schumer Shutdown -- in order to try and get a shutdown they think this president gets blamed for,” Mulvaney said.
