Trump Budget Director: “A Good Shutdown” Could Help Drain The Swamp
MICK MULVANEY: The president is frustrated that the process is Washington is broken. What we did this week was fine, and passable, but not ideal. The appropriations process, Congress using the power of the purse has been broken here in Washington for more than ten years, and I think a ‘good shutdown’ would be one that could help fix that.
It is part of that overall ‘Drain the Swamp’ mentality about Washington D.C.
This president is willing to think outside the box and do things differently around here to change Washington, and if that means a shutdown, so be it.
