Trump Unhappy but Signs $1.3 Trillion Spending Bill for National Security

Trump signs spending bill

President Donald Trump said he was “unhappy” with the $1.3 billion spending bill but signed it into law because it was necessary for national security. He emphasized that his “highest duty is to keep America safe.”

During a press conference, Pres. Trump said, “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 if we want to build our military.”

Hours before signing the bill on Friday, Pres. Trump posted a tweet threatening to veto the spending bill. He cited the reason that Congress abandoned the young undocumented immigrants and the funding for the border wall is not sufficient.
