Michael Savage: 'Trump Faked a Veto' on Budget

Michael Savage excoriated President Donald Trump on Friday for signing a $1.3 trillion omnibus budget after initially opposing it, declaring: "Trump faked a veto."

"Why?" Savage asked on his syndicated radio program. "Did anyone force him to sign it?

"We've gone from 'The Art of the Deal' to 'The Art of the Squeal,'" he said, referring to the president's 1987 best-selling book.

"Where's his negotiating skills? Why is he so complicit in this, the screwing of the American people?"

President Trump signed the bill, hours after he slammed it for having no funding for a border wall and hinted at a veto, thus averting a government shutdown that would have begun at midnight.

"As a matter of national security, I have signed this omnibus budget bill," Trump said at the White House. "There are a lot of things that I'm unhappy about in this bill.

"There are a lot of things that we shouldn't have had in this bill, but were in a sense forced [to have] if we want to build our military.

"My highest duty is to keep America safe."

Savage was unrelenting in his vitriol about President Trump's decision to sign the budget, noting his complaint earlier Friday that the bill had no permanent solution for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

"He didn't say that he was upset about it because it was too big," Savage told listeners. "He's upset that it didn't give amnesty to illegal immigrant children.

"Why did he sign this horrendous, bloated budget with no wall?"

Savage said that Trump's action raised an even bigger question, looking ahead: "Where do we go from here?

"Would you vote for Donald Trump again?" he asked. "Would you vote for another Republican again?

"Why did the Republicans push this bill? But the biggest question is not them, it's him?

"He has veto power," Savage said. "Why did he do it?"

"If Hillary [Clinton] had won, she wouldn't have gotten this bill through Congress."

Savage noted that the bill funded Planned Parenthood, National Public Radio and an underground tunnel project pushed by Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York.

"Every special interest in America is now celebrating the biggest budget-buster in history."

Despite Trump asking for $1.6 billion specifically for the border wall, the budget included that amount — but for fencing along the border and other technological and security improvements.

"We have no border wall, but we got a fence," Savage said.

"The great builder gave us a fence. It is a white-picket fence or what?"
