Mulvaney said Trump’s primary concern on the budget was defense spending, and he said Democrats did not engage Republicans honestly on that.

"[Democrats] said publicly that they wanted to work with us on [defense], but when the doors closed, what happened was they would not give us a single dollar worth of additional defense funding without giving us additional money for welfare spending," Mulvaney said.

"The truth of the matter is because of the 60-vote rule in the Senate, we need Democratic support. And Democrats would not support our increase in defense spending without that dramatic increase in social welfare programs," Mulvaney added.
