Donald Trump publicly claimed victory in his budget showdown with newly empowered House Democrats, but privately he is speaking a whole different tune. Trump apparently complained that Republican negotiators were outmaneuvered by House Democrats and didn't put up enough of a fight for border wall funding. Trump also bitterly complained about being shut out of negotiations and is apparently convinced that he could have struck a better deal with House Democrats that would have secured his wall funding.
