While Congressional leaders and the White House have assured the public that the federal government shutdown that technically began at 12:01 am ET Saturday morning could be over within 24 hours, Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget and a key player in the White House’s negotiations, told Fox News Sunday what many – including us – expect will be the case: The government shutdown could persist for weeks…

Mulvaney said Democrats want to keep the government shut for Trump’s Jan. 30 State of the Union address. The beginning of the shutdown also coincided with the anniversary of Trump’s swearing-in.

As we’ve pointed out, both of the two most recent shutdowns lasted for two weeks or longer, per Axios.

Mulvaney argued that the present shutdown differed from the 2013 Obama-era shutdown in that the Democrats want to support the Republicans’ stopgap.
