RT has just reported that DJT has withdrawn his objections and signed the bill.
If that is so, then there are two horrors – firstly the bill which tramples on what he was elected on but even more worrying is that someone advised him wrongly.
Going back to his election, I was watching the footage and Pence and Ryan quite clearly grinned at each other, as if in cahoots. I blogged on that at the time but no one seemed to have seen it. I thought then that he was probably unaware of many who said they were loyal to his agenda he was elected on.
How did the bill even get this far without DJT knowing? Someone has quite clearly been telling him porkies and assuring him all will be fine – someone he trusts.
It’s not fine and he himself noted today that various things were missing from this bill, which is a Democrat bill in content. We know Ryan and McConnell have pushed this through on the GOP side.
He seems to have no concept, DJT, that if he has signed it, he has lost his grassroots.

DJT has called a news conference:
News conference at the White House concerning the Omnibus Spending Bill. 1:00 P.M. [8 p.m. GMT]
13:08 British time:
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.
