Trump signs $1.3 trillion spending bill into law despite being 'unhappy' about it

Trump signs $1.3 trillion spending bill into law despite being 'unhappy' about it | 23 March 2018 | An "unhappy" President Donald Trump signed the $1.3 trillion spending bill into law Friday, his second about-face in 24 hours on the measure to keep the government open. The president said he approved the legislation to fund the government through September for national security reasons, as it authorizes a major increase in military spending that he supports. But he stressed that he did so reluctantly. Trump slammed the rushed process to pass the more than 2,200-page bill released only Wednesday. Standing near the pile of documents, the president said he was "disappointed" in the legislation and would "never sign another bill like this again."
