The centerpiece was a big increase in USA defense spending to $700 billion, up $61 billion, and a 10 percent hike in domestic spending, which would rise to $591 billion. As part of the bill, overall defense spending will jump to $700 billion, the largest increase in 15 years.
President Trump signed the bill in order to preserve increases in defence spending, while adding it was essential to national security. The bill includes $1.6-billion for six month's of work on the project but he had sought $25-billion for it.
"We have tremendous opposition to creating really what will be by far the strongest military we've ever had", Trump said.
Conveniently left out of Trump's blame was the fact that his administration ended the DACA program-which shields certain undocumented immigrants brought into the country as children from deportation-last September and punted the decision to Congress to draft new legislation.
The DACA is an American immigration policy that allows some individuals, under restrictive conditions, who entered the U.S. as minors, and had either entered or remained in the country without legal permission to do so, to receive a renewable two-year period of deferred action from deportation and to be eligible for a work permit. Trump moved to end the Obama-era program past year.
She went on: "Speaker Ryan has failed to live up to his promise to bring a Daca solution to the floor, and we will continue to press him to give us a vote to protect Dreamers".
Meanwhile the fate of Dreamers rests with federal courts, whose rulings have blocked Trump's administration from ending DACA for now, and ordered the resumption of DACA permit renewals.
The bill provided $1.6 billion for border security and construction or fix of almost 100 miles (160 kilometers) of border fencing, but that was far less than Trump had been seeking.
While disappointed that the border wall was not fully funded, Trump told reporters he will put the money to work immediately.
"We want DACA recipients to know that the Republicans are much more on your side than the Democrats". Trump asked Congress to allow him a "line item veto" in the future, and suggested the Senate remove the filibuster rule and make 51 votes the measure of bill's success.
The veto tweet surprised Republican lawmakers, who thought they had secured President Trump's approval earlier this week and when the bill was passed at the House on Thursday and cleared by the Senate on Friday. Lawmakers had just hours to read the almost 2,200-page bill released Wednesday night.
