Even as the White House began pointing the finger at Democrats on Friday in a steady messaging effort, blame for the shutdown also was directed at the Republican president. But, he said, "there would be an agreement that we would proceed to immigration with a broad understanding of what that is".
"I wouldn't rule out anything now, positive or negative". Asked whether he thought the government would be closed Monday, he said, "Right now, yes, I do".
Senate Republicans, however, have said that's not a solution they're taking seriously. "And we don't have anyone in White House or here in the Senate, in the House, or Republicacns in the president's own party to tell him he's got to straighten this whole thing out".
"It's nearly like you were rooting for a shutdown", said Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of Trump after the Senate refused to approve a shutdown-averting funding bill.
The main stumbling block is immigration and Mr Trump's refusal to fund a programme that protects 700,000 immigrants who arrived in the U.S. as children from deportation - so-called Dreamers. He built a large army of supporters and donors who helped him launch a presidential campaign in 2016 that outlasted nearly every other GOP candidate who took on Donald Trump.
Republicans seemed content to hope additional Democrats will break as pressure builds and the impact of the shutdown becomes clearer. "The Dems just want illegal immigrants to pour into our nation unchecked", President Trump wrote on Twitter. "That's why this compromise will be called a Trump Shutdown", the Senate's top Democrat Chuck Schumer said Saturday afternoon.
Despite last minute bipartisan meetings, the bill to fund the government until February 16 did not receive the required 60 votes. She said Republicans are "so incompetent and negligent that they couldn't get it together to keep the government open". But several senators said on Sunday the vote could be accelerated.

With the two sides frozen in standoff, the Senate will hold a vote at 1:00 am (0600 GMT) Monday on a new, three-week spending bill. Republicans are pushing the idea that Democrats are willing to vote against a spending bill over an unrelated issue: immigration. "If stalemate continues, Republicans should go to 51 per cent (nuclear-option) and vote on real, long-term budget, no CR's!"
Senate Republicans now hold a 51-49 edge.
In a Senate floor speech on Sunday, McConnell accused Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of imperiling children's health care, military training, veterans' care and other programs. Since then, there have been a slew of different circumstances that prompted shutdowns, but this shutdown is unique for one reason.
White House budget director Mick Mulvaney said in an interview on CNN's "State of the Union" Sunday morning that Schumer had not exactly offered the White House what they wanted on the wall, arguing Democrats had offered "to authorize" the wall, but not to appropriate funds for it.
Their legal status, which these young people were granted by former U.S. president Barack Obama, expires on March 5, the date from which their deportations could begin. "Use every tool legally available to you", Mulvaney said on "Face the Nation".
Republicans maintain that DACA and immigration reform must be handled separately from government funding, and are unwilling to negotiate until the government is reopened. "President Trump tells me to figure it out with the congressional leaders".
"Dreamers aren't bargaining chips" has been the mantra of Democrats who demand a "clean" DACA bill.
"This will be called the 'Trump shutdown" because there is no one, no one, who deserves the blame for the position we find ourselves in more than President Trump".
