Trump blasts 'ridiculous' US spending bill, revives shutdown threat

Trump blasts 'ridiculous' US spending bill, revives shutdown threatPresident Donald Trump on Thursday boosted the chances of a US government shutdown when he savaged a “ridiculous” spending bill that lawmakers from both parties had hoped would avert a standoff. “I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms?” Trump tweeted. The president’s remarks upended what congressional leaders thought would be a smooth process for approving a massive spending package before the current fiscal year ends on September 30, and in advance of November’s midterm elections.
