Trump said Tuesday in two consecutive tweets.
"Our Republican team had its own victory under the radar".
"In the last 100 years, or the last 50 years, or the last 10 years, we (Republicans) have been in the minority more than we've been in the majority" said Blunt.
They said they will back the bill with inclusion of a new amendment Upton authored adding more money to protect people with pre-existing conditions.
The $1 trillion agreement to fund the government through the end of this fiscal year on September 30 is essentially a modest trade: Republicans got a boost in defense spending and a few policy riders, while Democrats got money for some domestic priorities.
The bill's passage represented a vital step toward fulfilling a top Trump campaign pledge and a seven-year Republican quest to dismantle Democratic former President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law. "We can not simply muddle along using the same models the previous administration has used.' This is a change agent president, and he is going to change Washington, D.C. If it takes a shutdown, then that's what it takes".
The resulting deal, reached late Sunday night, includes a $15 billion boost in funding for the military.
President Donald Trump is touting the budget deal forged to fund the government through September, declaring: "This is what winning looks like". Regardless of what Trump proposes, if it involves a huge increase in spending (which is Trump's jam), Republicans won't be able to pick up enough Freedom Caucus members to get it across the finish line in the House.
The statement arrived on the eve of a House vote on the measure. "That type of spending doesn't give the military a view into the future". The bipartisan deal did not approve funding for Mr Trump's Mexico border wall, among other White House demands. "Not one", he said in April. If the rule was done away with, the Republicans could pass legislation with a simple majority. Nonetheless, McCain said that he was pleased that GOP negotiators got some military spending increases.
Mulvaney expressed frustration with Democrats in Congress, whom he accused of a "spike the football" celebration.
As families prepare for summer vacations in our National Parks - Democrats threaten to close them and shut down the government.
"They're walking around trying to make it look like they pulled one over fast on the President".
"It took gall for them to claim victory", the second senior administration official said, claiming Democrats capitulated on school choice, the wall and defense spending. Mulvaney even said on the call, before taking questions from reporters, "This is going to be a disaster".
"We didn't go dollar-for-dollar", Mulvaney said.
"What I think you heard the president express this morning was frustration over how he's been treated as part of the negotiation".
Not all Republicans were happy with the deal. Sen.
