Comment Of Appropriations Committee Vice Chair Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) On The President’s Veto Threat For the Omnibus Appropriations Bill, Which Cleared Congress Early This Morning

"Now the President threatens to abandon $700 billion for the troops, and health care for 7 million veterans, for his misbegotten border wall that he said Mexico would pay for. That is NOT Making America Great Again.


“I have this message for President Trump:  Mr. President, you terminated protections for DACA recipients, you cynically held them hostage for your costly boondoggle of a wall, and you have undercut every bipartisan attempt to fix the mess you created.  You can fix this.  Or at the very least, don’t unilaterally make things worse, yet again."
