He threatened to not sign the spending bill.

But in the end, he did.


Because it gave over half the $1.3 trillion to the military!

$700 billion to more precise.

To the US military.

Which has hundreds of bases all over the world.

And he wants a trillion more for more shiny new nukes, including brand new mini-nukes, to kill more people more efficiently, and threaten the whole world.

And after appointing the dreaded warmonger John Bolton as National Security Adviser.

Quick reminder : both Trump and Bolton avoided the Vietnam War.

President Trump jolted Washington on Friday when he began the day tweeting that he might veto a massive spending bill needed to prevent a government shutdown — and then appearing in front of cameras five hours later to say that he had signed the legislation.

Trump ripped into the $1.3 trillion funding package in remarks at the White House shortly after 1 p.m., calling it a “ridiculous situation,” filled with overspending yet lacking enough money for his border wall or a deal to resolve the future of the young, undocumented immigrants known as “dreamers.” He said he was only signing the bill because it contained a boost for the military.
