The shutdown is idling hundreds of thousands of federal workers and beginning to pinch citizens who count on some public services.
Pelosi, who has put blame squarely on President Donald Trump for the current government shutdown, was spotted Thursday vacationing in Hawaii at the Fairmont Orchid resort, where room accommodations range from $899-a-night for a standard room to $4,899-a-night for the presidential suite.
"He's staying in Washington, D.C., over New Year's", said Mulvaney, who is set to become Trump's acting chief of staff next month.
Trump appeared no closer to securing money for his signature border wall, which he vowed during the campaign that he would make Mexico pay for. But, with political opposition and public support possibly waning, the path ahead to making it a reality looks bumpier than ever.
Pelosi spokesman Drew Hammill added that Democrats united against the wall and won't seriously consider any White House offer unless Trump backs it publicly because he "has changed his position so many times".
Trump is also canceling plans to visit his Florida resort, Mar-a-Lago, and will remain in Washington over the New Year holiday, Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said.

Trump, meanwhile, has been hardening his rhetoric and on Saturday said that Democrats have given the Republicans none of the votes they need in the Senate to provide for border security.
"I think it's obvious that until the president decides he can sign something - or something is presented to him - that we are where we are", said Sen.
"If they can't do it before January 3, then we will do it", said Rep. Jim McGovern, D-Mass., incoming chairman of the Rules Committee.
The House and the Senate convened for just minutes on Thursday before gaveling closed until next week. Trump previously refused to sign any bill that does not include $5 billion for border security, including for his long-promised wall. It was unclear how Trump's threat to close the border would affect his efforts to ratify an amended North American free trade pact.
The Republican president also reiterated threats to cut off all USA aid to Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador, which he said were doing nothing to stop the flow of migrants toward the United States.
U.S. Rep. Vicente Gonzalez, D-McAllen, responded to the president's tweets via a prepared statement and did not address the threat to cut off aid to Central American countries.
That would "bring our vehicle industry back into the United States where it belongs", he said.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador reacted cautiously to Trump's threat to close the border, calling it an "internal affair of the US government".
