"The [Trump] Administration supports Senate passage of the substitute amendment to H.R. 1892 the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018," the release said. "If the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2018 were presented to the President in its current form, his advisors would recommend that he sign it into law."
The release said the non-defense spending in the bill is higher than the administration believes is necessary, and added that Congress should enact hundreds of billions of dollars in additional spending cuts proposed by the administration without delay.
It was earlier reported that Republicans and Democrats reached an agreement on the federal spending budget, including military and other funding. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has called his fellow congressmen to review the bill and join in voting to advance it.
The current short-term funding bill will expire at midnight Thursday.
