February 13, 2019
President Donald Trump intends to sign the congressional bill to fund the government and avoid a shutdown even though he doesn't like it, CNN reported.
Asked about the bill today, Trump said, "We haven't gotten it yet. We'll be getting it and we'll be looking for land mines" – a reference to the legislative text.
"I don't want to see a shutdown. A shutdown would be a terrible thing," Trump added.
