We were told Donald Trump would sign the Paul Ryan budget.
Then people responded.
I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded.

No one should be surprised that the man who insisted we would get tired of winning so much would hesitate to cut the enthusiasm out of his base.
While many would still be happy Hillary lost the presidency.
There wouldn’t be a reason to be excited about Donald Trump.

Chuck Schumer is praising the Republican spending bill.
What the hell else do you need to know?
Mr. President, veto this bill!

President Donald Trump threatened on Friday to veto the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill already passed by Congress, only hours before government funding would lapse.
The about-face comes a day after White House had said Trump would sign the legislation despite his misgivings. The government will shut down at 12:01 a.m. Saturday if Trump does not sign a funding bill into law.
In a tweet, Trump said he is “considering a VETO” because the proposal does not extend protections for hundreds of thousands of young undocumented immigrants or fully fund his proposed border wall.
The president’s tweet throws more chaos into the process to keep the government running, even after it looked like Trump’s signature would only be a formality. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney answered “yes” on Thursday when asked if Trump would sign the bill.
“Why? Because it funds his priorities,” he told reporters.[…]
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., had worked this week to win Trump’s support for the plan. He described it as a win for the president because it boosts Defense Department funding by about $80 billion, authorizes more money to fight the opioid crisis and puts more funding toward border enforcement.
