Trump signs U.S. budget bill to end government shutdown

Trump signs U.S. budget bill to end government shutdown

It also extends the USA government's borrowing authority until March 2019, sparing Washington politicians hard votes on debt and deficits until after mid-term congressional elections in November.

The US Congress passed a crucial federal spending bill Friday after hours of delay, sending the measure for President Donald Trump's signature to end the nation's second government shutdown in three weeks.

Little more than eight hours after it started, the government shutdown ended with President Trump quietly signing the compromise bill.

"Our Military will now be stronger than ever before", Mr. Trump tweeted.

The bill now moves to the House.

"Costs on non-military lines will never come down if we do not elect more Republicans in the 2018 Election, and beyond", he wrote.

Paul complained about massive government spending, telling his colleagues, "I think the country's worth a debate until 3 in the morning, frankly". "This will give time for the House and Senate Appropriations panels to craft a massive $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that will fund federal agencies until September 30".

Trump said it was a deal he had to make. Such debt limit votes are usually enormous headaches for GOP leaders, but the increase means another vote won't occur before March 2019. "It was very disappointing", she said.

Despite the support of their Senate leader Chuck Schumer, who says the budget accord will "break the long cycle of spending crises", some Democrats have complained that the bill does not address immigration.

IL representative Luis Gutierrez, one of the leading congressional advocates for immigrants, is urging colleagues to vote against the plan.

Paul, a senator from Kentucky, said the overall budget bill that includes the stopgap measure would "loot the Treasury".

The US House passed the bill on Friday in a 240-186 vote.

"We will solve this DACA problem", Ryan said just before the vote.

But Pelosi said Ryan's words fell short, accusing him of not having "the courage to lift the shadow of fear from the lives of" Dreamers who face the prospect of deportation.

Minutes after midnight, when the short-lived shutdown began, the U.S. Office of Personnel Management sent a notice to millions of federal employees telling them to check with their agencies on whether they should report to work on Friday.
