US President Donald Trump took to Twitter to announce to Americans that he had just signed the budget extension which the US House and Senate had passed a few hours earlier.

Saying: “Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before. We love and need our Military and gave them everything — and more. First time this has happened in a long time. Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!”

As stated in our earlier coverage, the bill contains $165bn of additional defense spending and $131bn in domestic spending (which includes additional funding for healthcare, infrastructure whilst keeping the yes on the ball when it comes to the US opioid crisis).

President Trump also stressed the need for more Republican wins in 2018 as he was forced to include several items he did not like into the bill, when he stated that: “Without more Republicans in Congress, we were forced to increase spending on things we do not like or want in order to finally, after many years of depletion, take care of our Military. Sadly, we needed some Dem votes for passage. Must elect more Republicans in 2018 Election!”

Lastly, the current White House occupant was glad to announce to that DACA is not included in the current bill, but noted that negotiations would soon start.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Costs on non-military lines will never come down if we do not elect more Republicans in the 2018 Election, and beyond. This Bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes. Fortunately, DACA not included in this Bill, negotiations to start now!</p>&mdash; Donald J.
