Trump Threatens To Veto Spending Bill Minutes After State TV Host Calls It McConnell’s “Swamp Budget”

The Washington Post reports:

President Trump said he might veto the sweeping $1.3 trillion spending bill passed early Friday — a move that would likely lead to a government shutdown — because it does nothing to address the fate of young undocumented immigrants and does not fully fund his border wall.

In a morning tweet, Trump said that those protected from deportation by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program have been “totally abandoned” by Congress, and he blamed Democrats. On Thursday afternoon, senior Trump administration officials told reporters that Trump intended to sign the spending bill, making no mention of the president’s concern.

Trump, who has sought to cancel the program, was seeking a deal that would give Democrats protections they sought for DACA recipients in exchange for additional funding for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall.
