OMB Director Mick Mulvaney and White House Legislative Director Marc Short told reporters Thursday morning that — although Congress' massive government spending bill contains what the administration views as major concessions to Democrats — President Trump will sign it into law as it "funds his priorities."

The blame game: Both Mulvaney and Short stressed that they would have been able to get more of what the administration wanted regarding immigration and cutting spending if Republicans "actually had control of the Senate."
