"I want to know, where is the money for Border Security and the WALL in this ridiculous Spending Bill, and where will it come from after the Midterms?," Trump asked in a post on Twitter. "Dems are obstructing Law Enforcement and Border Security. REPUBLICANS MUST FINALLY GET TOUGH!"
The Senate approved an $854 billion spending bill Tuesday that averts a September 30 government shutdown and keeps the military and a number of civilian agencies running through early December.
But the bill, which the House is expected to approve next week, does not include funding for Trump's long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, defying Trump's threat to allow the government to shut down on October 1 if funding for the wall was not included. Republican congressional leaders have said their preference is to resolve the issue after the November 6 elections.
Another spending bill was approved last week and House and Senate negotiators are working on a separate measure that will fund several other civilian agencies, as well as the U.S. Treasury and federal courts. Together, the three compromise spending bills would account for nearly 90-percent of the federal government's annual spending.
