Spending Bill Passes the Senate; Trump Threatens to VETO over DACA and Border Wall

Early this morning the Senate passed the massive spending bill – a $1.3 billion package that increases military funding and domestic spending.

Yesterday, Rand Paul seemed to be the only person who was actually trying to read the bill and live tweeted the different sections as he read them. After page 600, he retired for the evening and concluded he would vote no because of wasteful spending.

The bill passed 65-32, averting a potential government shutdown and funding the government through September 30.

However, in a new twist, President Trump tweeted this morning that he may veto the bill because it does not include provisions for DACA recipients or funding for the border wall.


If President Trump vetoes the bill, it would force a government shutdown, which could come this weekend.

This is a developing story.
