President Donald Trump on Tuesday took to Twitter to fire the first salvo in 2018 budget negotiations.

The president is clearly not satisfied with the $1.1 trillion spending bill he signed for the rest of fiscal year 2017 to avoid a shutdown of the federal government.

Though his administration and House leadership try to put the best face possible on the spending bill — touting military spending, e.g. — it does not include funding for the president's border wall, but does continue funding for Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities, among other Democratic wins.
