via Trump threatens to veto spending bill over DACA, border wall – AOL News

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump threatened on Friday to veto Congress’ newly passed $1.3 trillion spending bill over immigration issues, a surprise move that could force the federal government to shutdown when funding expires later in the day.

On Thursday, the White House said Trump was expected to sign the bill into law.

The U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate, both led by Trump’s fellow Republicans, have passed the legislation but in a post on Twitter the president criticized it for not fully funding for his proposed wall on the Mexican border or addressing Dreamer immigrants – those brought to the United States illegally when they were children.
