President Trump recently told the nation that he will indeed sign the omnibus bill, however he mentioned he has no more intentions of signing anything else like that again.
Trump opened his speech with, “[W]e’re going to get on to this ridiculous situation that took place over the last week.”
He later added, “[A]s a matter of national security, I’ve signed this omnibus budget bill. There are a lot of things that I’m unhappy about in this bill. There are a lot of things that we shouldn’t have had in this bill, but we were, in a sense, forced, if we want to build our military, we were forced to have. There are some things that we should have in the bill. But I say to Congress, I will never sign another bill like this again. I’m not going to do it again. Nobody read it. It’s only hours old. … But in this case, it became so big because we need to take care of our military, and because the Democrats, who don’t believe in that, added things that they wanted in order to get their votes. We have to get rid of the filibuster rule. … I’m calling on Congress to give me a line-item veto for all government spending bills.”
