US President Donald Trump took to Twitter on Friday to announce that he has signed the spending bill into law. The move comes shortly after the US House of Representatives and the Senate passed the bill.
The US House passed the bill on Friday in a 240-186 vote. Prior to that 71 senators voted in favor of the bill and 28 opposed it, hours after the government shut down at midnight on Thursday when the budget funding expired.
Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before. We love and need our Military and gave them everything — and more. First time this has happened in a long time. Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) 9 февраля 2018 г.
Trump said in another twitter statement that the bill increased spending on items he did not want or like in order to get Democratic votes.
Costs on non-military lines will never come down if we do not elect more Republicans in the 2018 Election, and beyond. This Bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes. Fortunately, DACA not included in this Bill, negotiations to start now!— Donald J.

In January, US government agencies also ceased their operations because of delays in the adoption of a temporary bill on the financing of such institutions, however, the Congress adopted a budget for the period until February 8.
