It's ironic that conservatives are only concerned about debt and deficits when Democrats hold the majority in the congress of the U.S. and have a supposed republican president in office, they're hardly conservatives when they hold those elected offices though. Take for instance Bush 43, he ran up the debt and deficits by waging two wars, and cutting taxes.
No republicans seemed to object to his policies, and democrats' hands were tied, just as they are now. These policies have long term ramifications.
Now that we have what some might call a neo conservative as a president, he swore after the last budget passage that he would not sign another $1T spending package. Would that be another lie he is telling? He does want to shut down the government. He has threatened to do so many times. In this ABC video, he threatened to shut government down over immigration:
Definition of neoconservative
1 : a former liberal espousing political conservatism
2 : a conservative who advocates the assertive promotion of democracy and U.S. national interest in international affairs including through military means
Trump does have neocons in his cabinet, one is Bolton. I also think Trump has heavy reliance on his former staff member Bannon, who is probably helping Trump steer his policies. Which is bad for America.
