USA: Trump threatens to veto omnibus bill because it does not address DACA recipients, fully fund border wall

President Trump said he might veto the sweeping $1.3 trillion spending bill passed early Friday — a move that likely would lead to a government shutdown — because it does nothing to address the fate of young undocumented immigrants and does not fully fund his border wall.

In a Friday morning tweet, Trump said that those protected from deportation by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have been “totally abandoned” by Congress, and he blamed the Democrats.

On Thursday afternoon, senior Trump administration officials told reporters that Trump intended to sign the spending bill, making no mention of the president’s concern. Several aides were trying to convince the president Friday not to follow through with his threat.

Note EU-Digest: As expected Donald Trump backed down and signed the bill as he understood that he was going to get the full blame by his own party and the Democrats, for shutting down the Government if he did. Signing the bill will, however, have the result that it will increase the already super high national deficit to disastrous and uncontrollable figures.  You don't need to be an Einstein to understand that.
