Trump defends $1.3 trillion spending plan, points to military gains


SNELL: Ryan went to the White House a day earlier to walk the president through the bill.

"I will never sign another bill like this again", he said.

Trump's tweet spooked Washington because most lawmakers were already out of town before a two-week recess.

President Trump ended the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program in September, he created a six-month delay to give Congress time to come up with a legislative version of the policy, which protected young undocumented immigrants who had come to the USA as children.

The bill also allowed only a portion of funding to go to Trump's long-promised border-wall project with Mexico, but it barred the construction of solid concrete walls and instead only allowed fencing, aircraft, sensors and other surveillance tools.

The vote in the Senate in the early hours of Friday caps weeks of congressional horse-trading. Schumer said. "We produced a darn good bill". "We dare you", Mr Pocan said on Twitter.

The immigrants, who were protected under the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) programme - which Trump ended last September - "have been treated extremely badly by Democrats", Trump said. The government spending bill passed quickly through rounds of voting in the House (256-167) and a subsequent passage from the Senate (65-32).

Trump is a unsafe, seriously flawed old man whose defects have been with him, I suspect, since childhood.

President Donald Trump argued Friday that Democrats have stood in the way of DACA recipients gaining permanent legal status, while casting Republicans as would-be saviors.

According to her statement, police have registered a case against her husband, an ex-village head and five village strongmen. The woman's husband is among the three that have since been arrested. "She didn't want us to just have a vehicle accident".

Kaine said Trump's professed concern about the deferred-action participants is not honest because he walked away from an offer from Democrats weeks ago to protect them in exchange for more border security funding. If Democrats do well in November's midterm election, the next spending bill Congress turns out could look very different than the one produced by this Republican-controlled House and Senate.

Melania reads "Fire and Fury" and studies up on "Prenup Law" while animated Trump (with a barking puppy as a toupee) tosses and turns in his bed while surrounded by newspapers with headlines such as "Putin Names Self U.S. Secretary Of State" and "Trump Tweets Actual Fact By Mistake".

Kaine said Trump's professed concern about DACA recipients is not honest because he walked away from an offer from Democrats weeks ago to protect them in exchange for more border security funding.

It was far short of the $25bn the White House had sought - and there are strings attached to the funding Congress has approved.

President Trump sounds as though he had no choice but to sign this very bad thing into law, but he, and Congressional Republicans did have choices. He urged the president to sign the bill. And you could certainly say that, you know, DACA was one of those things that got left out.

Initially, it had been a foregone conclusion that Trump would sign the ahead of a midnight deadline to keep the government running.

Veto threats were made then, too, but after conversations with Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican from Kentucky, the White House issued a statement saying Trump supported the bill.

Although Trump aides declared Thursday that he meant to sign the bill, there were signs of his displeasure with various aspects of it. The show's writers and animation team poke fun at Donald Trump's most glaring obsessions as an animated doppelganger of the celebrity-turned-politician reconsiders his life choices. "The answer is yes", Mick Mulvaney, director of the Office of Management and Budget, told reporters Thursday afternoon at the White House.
