And this is just for funding through September 30th of this year.
President Trump said “Dem giveaways” are part of that in order to get them to agree to other budget items:
Got $1.6 Billion to start Wall on Southern Border, rest will be forthcoming. Most importantly, got $700 Billion to rebuild our Military, $716 Billion next year…most ever. Had to waste money on Dem giveaways in order to take care of military pay increase and new equipment.

You know, voters need to give Republicans control of Congress so this kind of reckless spending and “Dem giveaways” can be tapered way back! Oh, wait…
Who wouldn’t have time to read all this?
Well here it is, all 2,232 budget-busting pages. The House already started votes on it. The Senate is expected to soon. No one has read it. Congress is broken… pic.twitter.com/izvJlUEgUM
