Fresh off Signing One Budget, Trump to Unveil Next One
They’re adding up. Ending a brief government shutdown on Friday, President Donald Trump can move forward with a legislative victory and the knowledge that Democrats have used up most of their leverage. On Monday, he’ll introduce his 2019 fiscal year budget proposal, but this time with a better chance of getting money for his border wall, which Democrats may have to accept in return for protecting “Dreamer” immigrants. Barrier funding chances are helped by increased spending limits in Friday’s bill, which could also fulfill Trump’s vow to boost military outlays.
