Donald Trump Reveals Decision on Omnibus Bill

Donald Trump Reveals Decision on Omnibus Bill”

President Trump signed the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill Friday despite an earlier threat to veto the legislation due to the lack of border wall funding and a fix for DACA.

President Donald Trump attends a Greek Independence Day Celebration reception in the East Room of the White House in Washington, Thursday, March 22, 2018.

Multiple reports cite White House sources confirming that the president will sign the bill. He decried how few members of Congress read the bill and how much waste it contained.

The omnibus bill would increase domestic spending by $128 billion over the 2011 sequestration budget caps and increase military spending by $160 billion over the budget caps. "It's only hours old. Some people don't even know what's in it".

Trump has long sought to cancel the DACA program, but hoped to use it as leverage with Democrats in exchange for additional funding for his wall. But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again.

The president said Friday he was "forced" to sign it because he didn't want to harm the military. "It became so big because we need to take care of our military and because the Democrats who don't believe in that added things they wanted".

"Today is an important day for privacy rights around the world, for global relations, and for building trust in the technology we all rely on every day", said Brad Smith, president and chief legal officer for the company. "But that's the way unfortunately right now the system works".
