President Donald Trump on Friday threatened to veto a $1.3 trillion spending bill passed by Congress over its failure to include a deal that would include protection for illegal immigrants brought to the country as children in return for funding for a wall — a move that would likely lead to a government shutdown. He tweeted: ”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.” The White House has tried to use the DACA issue to convince Democrats to support approximately $25 billion in funding for Trump’s central campaign promise. But a congressional GOP source told Fox News talks broke drown after Democrats pushed for a path to citizenship to include also those who are currently eligible — expanding those covered to 1.8 million. CLICK THE VIDEO BELOW FOR MORE:
