Earlier this week, courtesy of Trump’s latest flip-flop on the border wall, it looked as though a path had been cleared for a bi-partisan funding bill to be passed that would avert a government shutdown starting Friday night.

That said, it seems that Democrats may actually be eager to force a government shutdown after all. As budget director Mick Mulvaney explained to CNN last night, after giving in on border wall funding, something Dems defined as a critical issue to avert a shutdown, Democrats have apparently gone radio silent.

Tapper: “And there will be an agreement, you think?”

Mulvaney: “I hope so. Here’s what concerns me. We informed the democrats yesterday that we were not going to insist, for now, on bricks and mortar [for the border wall]. We’re going to move that discussion to September of this year for fiscal year 18. And we thought that was going to get a deal done. And we’ve not heard anything from them today. So, now i’m not so sure what is happening. I’d be curious to ask the democrats where they stand on a shutdown right now because we thought we had a deal as of yesterday.”
