Feature: The making of a trillion-dollar budget in Trump era

RELATEDHouse passes $1.3 trillion spending bill Senate next

"There are a lot of things I'm unhappy about in this bill", he said, patting the more than 2,000 pages of the legislation stacked on a purple box beside him.

He also marveled at cash earmarked for the country's nuclear missile program. Trump had hinted that he might veto the bill, but he ended up signing it to avert a government shutdown that would have been triggered at midnight tonight. "We're going to be starting work literally on Monday on not only some new wall - not enough but we're working on that very quickly - but also fixing existing walls", he said.

NAFCU urged Congress to fully fund the programs, which predominantly help credit unions serve low-income areas.

"I will never sign another bill like this again", right-wing firebrand Ann Coulter quoted Trump as saying and bluntly adding, "Yeah because you'll be impeached". It also increases defense spending by more than $60 billion from 2017.

Trump had insisted that any DACA legislation include funding for building an expansive border wall along the nation's southern border with Mexico. Several advisers inside and outside the White House said they suspected the tweet was just Trump blowing off steam.

"The scientific community is over the moon with the bipartisan omnibus bill in Congress that significantly increases funding for research and development", AAAS CEO Rush Holt, a physicist who served in the House from 1999 to 2015, said in a statement.

But the bill faced some animosity in the Senate, especially from fiscal conservative Sen.

While going over a bill that needed a vote made ideal sense to political outsiders, Paul's persistence was met with frowns and scowls from his peers, who see him deliberately delaying the voting process, as all 100 members' consent is needed for the upper chamber of Congress to proceed onto a vote. It would have been the third shutdown of 2018, something lawmakers from both parties had worked hard to avoid.

More frustrating, the president claimed, was the bill's failure to address protections for unauthorized immigrants who were brought to the United States as children in exchange for border security funding, a deal that fell apart during the omnibus negotiations. "No one has read it. Congress is broken".

"So I think that will be coming up very soon". Ultimately, the spending bill provides $1.6 billion for the border wall, well short of the $25 billion Trump requested for the project.

Still, Democrats were beyond pleased with the bill Friday. And we wanted to include DACA in this bill.
