Dreamers feel 'sold out' as Trump signs spending bill

Trump signs $1.3 trillion budget after threatening veto

"The answer is yes", he said, CNN reported.

"I can't sit here and tell you and your viewers that we love everything in the bill", he said on Fox. "We've talked for the last, I don't know, three, four, five, six months about trying to get the president's priorities funded, and this omnibus bill does that".

These individuals are potential beneficiaries of the Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors (Dream) Act, a bill that had been introduced in Congress in numerous versions over the past 17 years in an effort to provide a citizenship path for individuals who were brought into the United States unlawfully before the age of 16. "But that's the way unfortunately right now the system works".

"I will never sign another bill like this again, Trump said, scowling at the 2,000-plus page document".

"It does a lot of what we wanted - not everything we wanted - but a lot of what we wanted on immigration", White House budget director Mick Mulvaney told reporters.

Now, the funding bill heads to President Donald Trump for his signature. "I'm not going to do it again".

Trump's tweet created confusion after Congress gave final approval early Friday to the spending bill, which is needed to avert a federal shutdown.

There was no immediate comment from Republican leaders in Congress.

"Got $1.6 Billion to start Wall on Southern Border, rest will be forthcoming".

Trump's decision to ultimately sign the bill came after a call from Speaker Ryan.

"President Trump is moving the military away from the crippling policies of the Obama era that left our nation's defenses at its lowest levels of readiness since before WWII".

Trump repeatedly invoked the need to rebuild the USA armed forces to defend his signing of a bill that he was unhappy with.

His tweet was cheered by the conservative House Freedom Caucus, which voted against the spending bill along with two dozen Republicans in the Senate.

FILE - Prototypes for U.S. President Donald Trump's border wall with Mexico are seen behind the current border fence in this picture taken from the Mexican side of the border in Tijuana, Oct. 12, 2017. "Would have been tied to desperately needed Wall", Trump wrote on Twitter on Friday, one hour prior to announcing that he is considering a veto.

In addition to blasting the bill, Trump admitted that virtually none of the members of Congress who voted to pass the legislation had even read it - which isn't their fault, of course, but rather the fault of GOP leaders who rammed the measure down their throats.

The bill also does not defund so-called "sanctuary cities," something the White House specifically called on Congress to do.

The money was far less than the $25bn over 10 years Mr Trump had asked for as part of a last-ditch deal that would have included providing a temporary extension of the DACA programme.

The vote in the Senate early on Friday caps weeks of haggling over a number of key issues dividing lawmakers. Paul wanted to read through the bill first. The press conference comes just hours after he tweeted that he's considering vetoing the legislation.
