via Trump signs $1.3T omnibus spending bill after earlier veto threat: ‘I will never sign another bill like this again’ – AOL News

WASHINGTON, March 23 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump signed Congress’ newly passed $1.3 trillion spending bill on Friday, ending suspense over a surprising threat he made hours earlier to veto the budget and shut down the federal government.

In the latest episode of the Republican president throwing his White House, Congress and the federal government off balance, Trump had threatened in an early morning tweet to kill the government funding deal.

Initially, it had been a foregone conclusion that Trump would sign the bill ahead of a midnight deadline to keep the government running.
