Trump wants to have a massive military parade

"Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!" "Equally important, President Trump should understand that America doesn't have to display its military might like North Korea or others who need to puff up their importance". "This Bill is a BIG VICTORY for our Military, but much waste in order to get Dem votes".

The House of Representatives cleared the measure early Friday morning in a 240-186 vote, with 73 Democratic members voting for passage.

A second official said White House employees are expected to come to work as usual.

The Pentagon earlier on Thursday said it was not certain that the Washington-area would host a parade requested by President Donald Trump to honor the US military. But Democrats also had their divisions and wrangling, largely with liberals upset the measure was not tied to any plans to assist the "Dreamer" immigrants. Rand Paul of Kentucky blocked plans for a quick Senate vote because of his spending concerns.

Government appropriations ran out at midnight Thursday as Republican Sen.




In doing so, he forced the vote procedurally to occur after 1 a.m. ET on Friday, after government funding expired.

The House narrowly passed the budget accord in the pre-dawn hours, ending a brief government shutdown and clearing a path for huge spending increases for both the Pentagon and domestic programs.

President Donald Trump congratulated Congress for passing a two-year budget agreement on Friday, painting the massive bill as a win for the military.

The debt ceiling will be raised by the appropriate amount until March 2019.

CNN's Tal Kopan, Phil Mattingly and Deirdre Walsh contributed to the report.
