[ FULL TITLE ] [ Trump threatens to veto omnibus bill because it does not address DACA recipients, fully fund border wall ]

President Trump said he might veto the sweeping $1.3 trillion spending bill passed early Friday — a move that likely would lead to a government shutdown — because it does nothing to address the fate of young undocumented immigrants and does not fully fund his border wall.

In a Friday morning tweet, Trump said that those protected from deportation by the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program have been “totally abandoned” by Congress, and he blamed the Democrats.

On Thursday afternoon, senior Trump administration officials told reporters that Trump intended to sign the spending bill, making no mention of the president’s concern. Several aides were trying to convince the president Friday not to follow through with his threat.

Trump, who sought to cancel DACA last fall, was seeking a deal that would give Democrats protections they sought for the program's recipients in exchange for additional funding of $25 billion for his long-promised U.S.-Mexico border wall. The bill includes a minor down payment of $1.6 billion on his marquee campaign promise.

I want the illegal DACA program ended and ALL illegal aliens removed, regardless of how or when they broke into our country.

There is a tremendous amount of horrible things in the bill, not addressing the DACA silliness is not one of them. Just deport them all and let’s get on with MAGA for Americans.

Pay attention to what Trump does, not what he says.

Or do you believe what he says is more important than what he does?

I say veto it over DACA and at least a hundred other spending reasons. Rand Paul started a good list on Twitter last night.

You probably won’t get what you want. Even if you were the president.

I didn’t think he would support it once the White House got the details. This is no surprise to me at all.

The DACA statement is a chess move, puts everyone back on their heels - nicely done.

He gets to blame the veto on the Democrats. It’s brilliant.

Trump needs to have a very public news event where he explains exactly why he is vetoing this turd burglar. Then he needs to name every rethuglucan who voted for this blatant act of sedition, and announce his support for anybody who primaries them, and announce the mother of all campaign rallies to kick off the campaigns of anybody challenging these scum
