Donald Trump

It was all good just a day ago, or so it seemed.

Though it seemed that for the most part everyone got their way in the proposed spending bill that averted a government shutdown on Sunday, it looks like President Trump was not happy about the compromise at all.  In a series of tweets on Twitter, Trump lashed out demanding a future government shutdown and calling for the Senate to eliminate the legislative filibuster.

“The reason for the plan negotiated between the Republicans and Democrats is that we need 60 votes in the Senate which are not there! We…. either elect more Republican Senators in 2018 or change the rules now to 51%. Our country needs a good “shutdown” in September to fix mess!,” Trump tweeted.

According to the New York Daily News, Trump’s is likely frustrated that Congressional Democrats and Republicans largely paid little attention to what he wanted so they could agree together to keep the government funded. The agreement included cash for Democratic-favored items Planned Parenthood, meanwhile Trump was barred from the money he needed to start building his promised Mexican border wall.

Trump is not likely to veto the bipartisan compromise to keep the government open now, but that does not mean the government would not face a shutdown if the president ever became angry over budgets and funding again.

One wish Trump may get is his wish for new Republicans in the Senate after 2018, as 10 Democrats are running in states he won last year. But his governing style and low approval ratings are quickly dashing those hopes as well.
