President Trump threw cold-water on the recently passed omnibus spending bill making its way towards his desk Friday morning; suggesting he may veto the legislation over its failures to both fund his promised border wall and find a permanent solution for the nation’s ‘Dreamers.’
The Commander-in-Chief posted his threat on social media just hours after the bill cleared Congress, blasting Congressional Democrats for “totally abandoning” the nation’s 800,000 DACA-recipients.
“I am considering a VETO of the Omnibus Spending Bill based on the fact that the 800,000 plus DACA recipients have been totally abandoned by the Democrats (not even mentioned in Bill) and the BORDER WALL, which is desperately needed for our National Defense, is not fully funded,” Trump tweeted.

The President was reportedly pleased with many aspects of the bill -particularly the increased funding for the military- but has repeatedly threatened to sink any proposal that doesn’t adequately fund his signature campaign promise: a physical wall along the nation’s southern border with Mexico.
DACA DISASTER: Trump Calls out DEMOCRATS for Immigration Failure
President Trump called-out liberal legislators over their total inaction on DACA Tuesday morning, slamming the left-wing lawmakers for abandoning ‘Dreamers’ while insisting a “deal can be made.”
The Commander-in-Chief vented his frustration with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi on social media, blasting the nation’s top democrats for abandoning DACA recipients after weeks of political grandstanding and speeches.
“Total inaction on DACA by Dems. Where are you? A deal can be made!” Trump tweeted

The President’s comments come just one day after ‘Dreamers’ and other pro-DACA demonstrators protested outside the Democratic National Committee Headquarters in Washington, DC; trashing Democratic lawmakers for using immigrant youth as a “political pawn.”
DACA DISASTER: ‘Dreamers’ CALL OUT Hypocritical DEMOCRATS on Immigration Failure
Things went from bad to worse for liberal legislators Thursday afternoon on the issue of immigration, with several prominent ‘Dreamers’ calling out hypocritical Democrats for their total inaction on striking a deal with President Trump on Obama’s DACA program.
“They don’t walk their talk,” said a 20-year-old Dreamer. “We’re tired of it. We’re tired of believing them when they say, ‘It’s the Republicans.’ They make promises when they’re in an election, and when it’s over they’re done and don’t do anything.”
“I’ve decided to put my faith in my community [of Dreamers] and not in the Democrats,” she added.
Large numbers of DACA-recipients are beginning to abandon the Democratic Party in troves after liberal lawmakers essentially abandoned the Obama-era program during the ‘Schumer Shutdown.’
“The Democrats made the calculation to kick the can down the road and allow hundreds of thousands of us undocumented youth to live in uncertainty,” said a protester outside the DNC Monday. “We are anxious, and we are scared of being torn away from our homes and our community.”
President Trump remains hopeful a deal can be reached on the Obama-era program before it expires, telling ‘The Latino Coalition’ just this week that a “deal on DACA” can be achieved, but that “Democrats are nowhere to be found.”
