Today, President Trump said he was “disappointed” in the “ridiculous situation” that is the $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that passed the Senate and went to his desk this morning. In spite of Trump’s mountain of criticism for the bill, he signed it anyway:
Pres says he has signed spending bill, "as a matter of national security," to provide the increase in funding for the military. But says he'll never sign an Omnibus bill like this again. pic.twitter.com/fvH7sZvhop

And at 2,232 pages, who knows what’s in there?
“Nobody read it,” Trump says of $1.3TR omnibus spending bill he’s about to sign after trashing it. Says he’ll never sign another like it.

Nobody read the whole thing? What could possibly go wrong? It might not be long before a scream is heard coming from an office in the West Wing: “It’s a COOKBOOK!”
But at least Nancy Pelosi’s thrilled:
Anyone taking a serious look at the funding agreement will see that Democrats secured concrete progress that will create jobs, improve health & advance economic security across America.

Apparently she’s the House Speaker again and the Dems control things. Who knew!?
