President Donald Trump says he is reviewing the border security compromise. But he is not yet promising to sign off on the deal.
Trump tweeted Thursday: "Reviewing the funding bill with my team at the @WhiteHouse!"
The president is widely expected to sign the compromise that would avert a government shutdown, but would only provide a fraction of the dollars he sought for a barrier along the U.S.-Mexico border. Still, Trump has not publicly declared his plans and has made clear he is not happy with the deal.
The Democrat-controlled House was poised to pass the sweeping measure Thursday evening, and the Republican-led Senate was expected to approve as well. Bargainers formally completed the accord moments before midnight Wednesday night.
