Trump Slams Congress Over Wall Funding
President Trump is not happy with the new spending bill that the Senate has passed and is now moving to the House for consideration. Particularly the President is not happy because it does not include funding for his southern border wall.

According to The Daily Wire:

President Trump went on a furious tirade on Thursday as he slammed Congress's "ridiculous" spending bill, deriding the lack of money for his campaign-promised southern border wall.

"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 said in a post on Twitter. "Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security. REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY GET TOUGH!"


Trump also quoted Sen. David Purdue, Georgia Republican.

“'We can’t secure the Border because of the Democrats historic level of Obstruction. The Presidents fed up with this. His agenda is working. The economy is growing at twice the rate it did under Obama. We’ve nominated and confirmed 68 Federal Judges, 26 Court of Appeals Judges...'" he wrote on Twitter.​

Trump has threatened before that he will not sign any spending bill that does not include funding for the border wall. It is unclear if Congress will heed his warnings and provide the funding.
