Trump signed 1 trillion spending bill to keep government open

Vastavam web: President Donald Trump signed his first piece of major legislation today, a USD 1 trillion spending bill to keep the government operating through September.The bill cleared both houses of Congress this week and Trump signed it into law behind closed doors at his home in central New Jersey, well ahead of a midnight Friday deadline for some government operations to begin shutting down.Republicans praised USD 15 billion in additional Pentagon spending obtained by Trump, as well as USD 1.5 billion in emergency spending for border security, though not for the wall he has vowed to build along the US-Mexico border to deter illegal immigration.Trump also wants a huge military buildup matched by cuts to popular domestic programs and foreign aid accounts.
The sweeping, 1,665-page bill also increases spending for NASA, medical research, and the FBI and other federal law enforcement agencies.Trump took to Twitter earlier this week to complain about the bipartisan process that produced the measure but later changed his tone and began highlighting the spending that was added for the military and for border security.He advocated in one tweet for a “good shutdown” in September to fix the “mess” that produced the bill, but then appeared in the White House Rose Garden hours later to boast that the measure amounted to a big win for him
