In the USA, why is there still a government shutdown when Congress and the White House are controlled by the same party?

During the [United States federal government shutdown of 2018](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_federal_government_shutdown_of_2018), a single party commanded both the White House and a majority in both houses of Congress. Under these circumstances, why is there a government shutdown? Does it mean that this party is unable to agree between its members in Congress and its President?
