President Trump signed the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill at a ceremony in the White House Friday; blasting the budget over its failure to address critical spending issues but saying it needed to pass to protect the nation’s military and avert a government shutdown.
While the proposal fails to address DACA and the President’s border wall, it does secure a pumped-up defense budget by more than $60 billion from the same period last year.
“As a matter of national security I’ll sign this omnibus budget bill,” said the President, before issuing a stark warning to Congress.
“There are a lot of things I’m unhappy about in this bill. There are a lot of things we shouldn’t have had in this bill but we were, in a sense, forced [to] if we want to build our military, we were forced to have,” he added.
“But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again. I’m not going to do it again,” said the Commander-in-Chief.
