President Trump on Tuesday knocked a bipartisan deal to avert a government shutdown while providing some funding for barriers along the U.S.-Mexico border.
“I can’t say I’m happy. I can’t say I’m thrilled,” Trump told reporters during a Cabinet meeting.
He did not say whether he would sign or veto the proposal but added he would hold a meeting to discuss it later.
The proposal would provide $1.375 billion in funding for roughly 55 miles of new barriers along the southern border, well short of the $5.7 billion Trump demanded.
