  • Trump says he's signed $1.3T budget bill

President Donald Trump abandoned a threat to shut down the U.S. government Friday, signing off on a budget despite being "unhappy" with many of its provisions - and warning he won't back anything similar ever again.

Wallace was discussing Trump's impromptu non-news conference, during which the president argued against the spending bill as he signed it into law. "Nothing is more important", Trump said, claiming the bill reverses military spending cuts of past presidents. Whatever you think of him, though, he's shown nearly no real interest in putting in the work to fix things like Congress passing 2,200-page bills just before a deadline.

President Donald Trump is warning Congress that he will "never sign another bill like this again", as he signs a $1.3 trillion spending bill.

As recently as Thursday, White House adviser Marc Short said the White House had gotten what it asked for in the bill when it came to border-wall funding - contrary to Trump's Friday morning tweet.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) filibustered for eight hours earlier this year to bring attention to DACA recipients as a different spending bill decision loomed ahead of a possible government shutdown.

"I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded", Trump wrote.

The conservative wing of Trump's party had panned the bill because of its spending increases and some deficit hawks cheered Trump's Friday morning threat to veto it.

Democrats were said to have countered they would accept that only if a path to citizenship was guaranteed for all 1.8 million people eligible for Daca.

But Trump says the permitted work will begin "literally on Monday". He rejected every single one of them. Trump was reportedly reacting to a reminder that a budget deadline loomed at midnight on Friday, and he would be blamed if the federal government were to shut down again.

The spending package allows big spending increases for defence and domestic programs, while adding money for infrastructure projects, veterans and measures to combat the opioid crisis, among other programmes.

"But I want the Hispanic community to know, I want the DACA-recipients to know, that Republicans are much more on your side than the Democrats who are using you for their own purposes", said the Commander-in-Chief. "Not exactly what we wanted where we wanted", budget director Mick Mulvaney said Thursday.

Trump backed the bill only reluctantly, and Republican lawmakers and aides acknowledged the deal involved trade-offs for Democratic votes that were needed despite the GOP majority lock on Congress. Trump growled. "It takes time to read it".

She touted Trump's "completely reasonable deal" that would offer a permanent fix for DACA in exchange for funding for the border wall, but wasn't happy that Congress didn't accept the deal heading into the November elections.

"This bill starts construction on the wall", Republican Speaker of the House Paul Ryan told reporters.
