Omnibus spending bill: A score for the swamp?

President Trump signed a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill, despite a threatened veto the legislation; Congressman Dave Brat reacts to ” The Ingraham angle.’


President Trump to lose faces, with the support of its base of the consequence of his decision on Friday to sign a controversial and much-mocked $1.3 trillion spending bill-about not only his size, but his error for the financing of his campaign, the wall promises to the southern US border.

Trump threatened a veto for the legislation, voted by the house and the Senate on Thursday and early on Friday to avoid a government shutdown.

I was considering a VETO of the Omnibus spending bill is based on the fact that the 800,000 plus IF the recipient has not been completely abandoned by the Democrats (also mentioned in the invoice), and the border wall, which is urgently needed for our National defense, is not fully funded.

The conservatives protested, the 1.3 trillion-Dollar price tag, as well as the failure of the promotion of Republican causes, such as defunding of planned Parenthood and the funding of the wall on the southern border in particular. While the legislation served to 1.6 billion dollars for border security, it consisted mainly of repairs and additions to existing fences.

Leaders in Congress and the White house noted that it increased funding for the military, the infrastructure, and grants to combat the nation’s opioid epidemic.

Trump blindsided the White House aides and lawmakers when he tweeted Friday morning that he was considering a Veto of the legislation on funds for the border wall, as well as an Update to the expiration of the end of Obama’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals is a lack of program that provides protection for illegal immigrants brought into the country as children.

But Trump eventually signed the mammoth legislation reluctantly, said in remarks to the press with other members of the administration that, in order to secure a necessary increase in the defense expenditure, he had to give the money to democratic projects, which he derided as a “wasted sum of money.”

“It is not right, and it is very bad for our country,” he said.

But he said the expenditures for the military to be of crucial importance, and it was the concern that overrode his thoughts about the Veto of the legislation.


“Therefore, as a matter of national security, I have omnibus budget signed invoice. There are a lot of things that I say unfortunate’m in this bill… But Congress, I will sign the never another law like this. I’m not going to do it again,” he said.

However, despite its distancing from him, the very act of writing angry its base. A White house official said Axios, that the reaction to the signing, “is the hardest that I’ve ever seen, the base, in turn, to trump over everything.”

“A big reason why people voted for him was because of his apparent willingness to, up to the entrenched political class in both parties,” the official said. “The voters wanted a fighter who would not back down to ‘the swamp’ as a ‘typical politician.'”

The conservative commentator Ann Coulter, in 2016, wrote a book called “In the trump suit, we have confidence,” said Fox News Radio’s Tom Shillue, the impact on the GOP in the midterm elections, especially in the house.

“The house is definitely tilting, why would anyone vote Republican?”, she said.

On Twitter, you also have congratulated, “President Schumer” and agreed with trump, that he will not sign another bill, but added that it was charges because a Democratic House would him.

“I’m going under another law such as this draw never again”

Yes, because they are accused of.

“The President was really a bill of goods sold here,” Christopher Ruddy, Newsmax’s chief executive, said on a regular basis in contact with Trump, The Washington Post. “Conservatives look at this omnibus bill and say, ‘This is the reason why you have chosen Donald Trump. The writing is not a good bill for him.’ “

Commentator Michelle Malkin told Fox and friends that she was disgusted with the legislation, but has most of their anger on the congressional leadership.

“I’m disappointed; I’m disgusted,” Malkin said. “I’m disgusted with the so-called GOP leadership. This falls squarely on the shoulders of Paul Ryan and Mitch McConnell. It’s business as usual.”

Even in Congress, there was significant opposition to the legislation. The conservative house freedom Caucus Trump before signing to veto the bill, the budget, while hawk Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky, had invited., again and again the statement slammed, and later say: “Maybe the GOP Democrats is not, holding hands is such a great idea.”

The trump team continue to point the blame to the Congress, and with the trump campaign consultant Katrina Pierson tweet back to Paul: “It would be helpful, to change, to do from their leadership rather than to maintain them.”

It would be helpful to change they do their leadership rather than to maintain them. America had its part. #food forthought #maga ??

But other consultants were less supportive of the President.

“The win was the worst day since the 2016. Signing that Bush/Obama budget was a kick in the stomach”, a conservative adviser to trump, but not in the White house, told Fox News. “I still love this President, but, wow, that’s hard to swallow this bitter pill. Funded planned Parenthood and not a wall. What we have to fight so hard?”
