Trump to sign US spending bill into law on Friday: White House

Trump touts GOP unity but Congress is split ahead of shutdown immigration deadlines

34 GOP House members resigning vs. 16 Democrats

Our Military will now be stronger than ever before. "It lifts the spending caps for defense and urgent domestic priorities, so our armed forces, for the first time in a long time, well-funded, and so many things that affect middle-class New Yorkers will be well-funded as well. Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!"

President Donald Trump praised the two-year budget agreement as "so important for our great military"- adding that "Republicans and Democrats must support our troops and support this bill". Before it was announced, Republican members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus loudly panned the increased spending as fiscally irresponsible and warned it would add to burgeoning deficits.

However, it would not resolve the plight of immigrant "Dreamers" who face deportation after being brought to the US illegally as children. The deal included additional funding for a number of healthcare programs, as well as an extension to the Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP)'s funding on top of the extension that had already been put in place with the last spending bill in January.

"This bill is a product of extensive negotiations among congressional leaders and the White House". It contains $80 billion in disaster relief for Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Texas and Florida. A last-minute maneuver by Sen. In doing so, Paul forced the vote procedurally to occur after 1 a.m. ET on Friday, after government funding expired. The shutdown was the second partial government shutdown in three weeks.

"I ran for office because I was very critical of President Obama's trillion-dollar deficits", the Kentucky senator said. "If we have to shut it down because the Democrats don't want safety. let's shut it down". "I can't ... in good faith, just look the other way because my party is now complicit in the deficits".

The Marist poll surveyed 1,012 US adults from February 5 to 7 and had a margin of error 3.7 percentage points. The effects from the overnight shutdown were expected to be minimal, but it will remain until Trump signs the funding plan.

Trump tweeted Friday morning that he had signed the bill, writing that the USA military "will now be stronger than ever before". "A two-year delay averts a combined $5 billion in cuts, pays for itself, and gives Congress and hospitals time to work together on long-term solutions to the financial burden of uncompensated care".

"This Bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes", he tweeted.

U.S. Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) walk to the Senate chamber on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., U.S., February 7, 2018.
