"President Trump may not like what he sees in this budget deal, but it's unsafe and irresponsible to respond by calling for a shutdown", said Sen.
The biggest problem: The legislation would let insurers charge people with pre-existing conditions more for their health care if those people let their insurance lapse at any point.
Asked how the president would define a "good shutdown", Mulvaney suggested "it would be one that fixes this town".
Trump wants Congress to overhaul the tax code, approve a $1 trillion infrastructure package and raise or suspend the debt ceiling before the government begins falling behind on its obligations. The White House spent much of the day lashing out against a Washington narrative that minority party Democrats outperformed the White House in the negotiations. "I just don't agree".
Later, the White House said he would indeed sign the bill.
The budget is funded through Saturday, and the bill being considered in the House would extend it through September.
That's despite a host of concessions, including on money to construct Trump's promised southern border wall and funding for cities that don't cooperate with immigration authorities.
White House Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Tuesday that Congress needs to return to the practice of passing one-year appropriations bills and sending them to the White House for approval, not continuing the recent practice of lurching from one stopgap spending bill to the next.
Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly said he is "shocked" by the behavior of lawmakers who are celebrating slowing down its construction.
KEITH: Trump talked up an increase in defense spending built into the bill.
"I do wish somebody would take his iPhone away from him", Republican Sen.
"I don't think there's anything more powerful than giving them more control over their time so that they can make the best decisions for themselves and their families", Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers of Washington said Tuesday morning in a press conference held by Republican leaders in the House.
"After years of partisan bickering and gridlock, this bill is a clear win for the American people", he said.
New York girds itself for Trump's first visit as president
Before his inauguration on January 20, Trump lived and worked at his Manhattan headquarters Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue. That figure more than doubles to an average cost of $308,000 per day whenever the president is in town.

It offered an encouraging sign for the Capitals as the margin for error is only getting smaller as the series rolls along. That was momentarily erased in the final two minutes of regulation, and then salvaged in overtime.
Claims about Trump's tax plan don't hold up
CNBC's sample included 1,941 of the largest public companies, which had combined net income of more than $1 trillion in 2016. Most everyone fears it, but it's already been so watered down as to apply only to estates worth at least $5. 5 million .
Trump earlier threatened to force a government shutdown, tweeting: "Our country needs a good "shutdown" in September to fix mess!"
But the top Republican in the House of Representatives, Speaker Paul Ryan, painted the accord differently, saying that his party's negotiators had been successful in ending an Obama-era requirement that an increase in military spending had to be matched equally with a boost in domestic funding.
Mulvaney cited a $15 billion infusion of defense spending - about half of what Trump asked for in March - as a huge win.
That contradicted Mr Trump's message of less than a week ago when he tweeted that Democrats were threatening to close national parks as part of the negotiations "and shut down the government". "If you're in a bipartisan meeting, I think it's very unusual for one group to walk out and start spiking the football and say, 'Hey, we won, we killed the other guys, ' and it certainly doesn't bode very well for future discussions".
Upton is a respected authority on health care who formerly chaired the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
Under the revised GOP bill, states obtain waivers to raise premiums on people with pre-existing illnesses must have a high-risk pool or another mechanism to help such people afford a policy.
Republicans are struggling to find the necessary support to pass the bill, and whip counts show the fate of the bill in the House is unclear. If 23 Republicans defect, the bill would likely fail a floor vote. Upton's defection could make it easier for other moderates to vote no.
As Republicans scramble to tamp down fears that their health care bill would gut protections for sick people, they're running into a chorus of opposition - from fellow Republicans.
"There are several hundreds of millions of dollars for us to replace cyclone fencing with 20-foot high steel wall", Mulvaney told reporters Tuesday. "We're convinced we've got the votes, and we're going to keep moving on with our agenda". Multiple GOP members said there is no indication on vote timing on health care.
It'd take a united Republican front to change the rules, and with so many Republicans opposed, the rules won't change anytime soon.
His Tuesday tweets about Senate procedures came after Senate Republicans recently triggered the "nuclear option" to eliminate the 60-vote filibuster threshold for Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch.
