Trump: Congress should get spending bills done before break
WASHINGTON вЂ” President Donald Trump is urging the Senate to get its work done on funding before the August break, вЂњor NOT GO HOME.вЂќ
The president tweeted Saturday that вЂњWall and Border Security should be included.вЂќ He also said that he is вЂњwaiting for approval of almost 300 nominations, worst in history.вЂќ
Trump blamed Democrats for вЂњdoing everything possible to obstruct.вЂќ
The presidentвЂ™s push for speedy action on spending measures and nominations, followed a recent letter from a group of Senate Republicans pressing Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to cancel the August recess later this year. That effort was led by Sen. David Perdue of Georgia.
The Senate Republicans said that spending more time on their pending work is particularly critical when Congress is facing what they call вЂњhistoric obstructionвЂќ by Democrats.
