WASHINGTON – President Donald Trump says a spending plan being pushed by Republicans in congress is “ridiculous” because the funding for a wall with Mexico, that Trump has promised, is not included.
Trump tweeted Thursday that he wants to know “where is the money for the Security of the borders and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where it came from after the mid-term elections? Dem obstruct Enforcement of the Law and the Security of the borders. THE REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY DIFFICULT!”
Trump ‘ s eruption may complicate GOP efforts to delay a potentially messy battle over the border funding until after the midterm elections in November.
The Senate on Tuesday approved a bill to allow the funding of the military and some civilian agencies for the following year and gives a short-term solution to keep the government open through Dec. 7.
