U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said he has signed Congress' massive $1.3 trillion spending bill into law, funding the government through September 30 and averting a government shutdown hours before funding was scheduled to lapse.
Within hours Trump proved his veto threat was exactly that when he signed the spending bill at the White House, but Quinonez wasn't alone in calling bullshit on the way the president tried to frame the DACA issue in the context of the omnibus.
Trump said he signed the measure that had passed the Senate just hours earlier "as a matter of national security", because it dramatically expands military funding and provides for "the largest pay increase" for U.S. troops in over a decade.
"I don't think what we did was the best thing we could have done", he added.
Conservatives have criticised the president for signing the giant budget bill.
Trump had until midnight (Saturday afternoon NZT) to sign a bill or a government shutdown would ensue.
The Senate passed the spending bill by a 65-32 vote early Friday after the House of Representatives approved the measure Thursday.
The massive spending package marks the end of a months-long funding stalemate in which lawmakers were forced to pass one short-term spending bill after another to stave off a shutdown.
Republicans hold majorities in both the House and Senate, but there was not universal support in the party for the bill.

Trump canceled the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program that gives work permits to the Dreamers and protects them from deportation. Neither Speaker Paul Ryan nor Senate Leader Mitch McConnell commented publicly on it.
Trump's notorious border wall was also not fully funded.
"We wanted to include DACA".
Trump had insisted that any DACA legislation include funding for building an expansive border wall along the nation's southern border with Mexico. White House budget officials have nonetheless tried to spin the funding as a win. Trump growled. "It takes time to read it".
The Senate was in session until almost 1 a.m. this morning in order to pass a major government spending bill before a two-week spring break. It makes me wonder what went wrong with this malicious person in his life, but it leaves me with absolutely no doubt that something very serious did go wrong, and it has never been fixed.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) had reached a deal with Trump for DACA legislation in return for the wall cash that month, but Trump later backed out of the agreement.
Trump had kicked off his Friday festivities with a veto threat tweet that proved to be brilliant counterprogramming for the morning's news cycle chatter about Anderson Cooper's interview with former Playboy bunny Karen McDougal.
