President Trump took a shot Thursday at the Republican’s stopgap spending bill to keep the government open, saying it shouldn’t include funding for the Children’s Health Insurance Program.
“CHIP should be part of a long term solution, not a 30 Day, or short term, extension!” the president tweeted.
House Republicans included funding for the popular low-cost health program for children to put more pressure on Democrats to back the bill ahead of a shutdown deadline Friday.
Mr. Trump has called for a “clean” spending bill that keeps the government open for several weeks while lawmakers negotiate a full-year budget and a fix to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals or DACA program that provides temporary deportation amnesty for “Dreamers.”
