President Trump appears ready to sign on to the budget deal congressional Republicans negotiated, but he apparently feels he could have done a far better job.

CNN reports that Trump has privately been complaining that Republicans' work negotiating this deal to prevent another shutdown has been "inadequate," and he's annoyed that he wasn't asked to participate in the the process. Trump has reportedly "wondered why he, an experienced dealmaker, wasn't consulted at more regular intervals," writes CNN.
