His remarks came as Senate leaders attempted to schedule a vote on a bipartisan budget agreement attached to a bill to fund the government until March 23.

But if the government shuts down tonight, then you may have only one person to thank: Sen.

Passage is all but assured in the Senate, but House leadership faces a hard road in moving the budget bill through the chamber.

Some House conservatives signaled that would vote against the plan due to the spending increases.

The Senate on Wednesday reached a bipartisan agreement that would allocate a defense budget of $700 billion in fiscal year 2018 and $716 billion for FY 2019, Defense News reported Wednesday.

The IOC accused Russian Federation of systematic violations of anti-doping rules, particularly during the 2014 Sochi Olympics.

"The Budget Agreement today is so important for our great Military", he tweeted.

Pelosi, who created a House record on Wednesday with a floor address lasting over eight hours by focusing entirely on the Dreamers' issue, said the Senate package "does nothing to advance bipartisan legislation to protect Dreamers in the House".

The measure also contains nearly 90 billion dollars (£64 billion) in overdue disaster aid and an increase in the U.S. government borrowing cap that would prevent a first-ever default on its obligations.

But now, with control of both chambers of Congress and the White House, it looks likely that the GOP's two most signifcant legislative achievements will be a tax reform law that raises the deficit by $1.5 trillion and a spending deal that increases the federal tab by hundreds of billions more.

Ms Pelosi took to the House floor for more than three hours, and said she would oppose the almost-completed budget pact even though it would boost funding for many domestic priorities favoured by Democrats.

Trump said in another twitter statement that the bill increased spending on items he did not want or like in order to get Democratic votes. The White House said that the FBI background investigation was still ongoing when Porter resigned, which would mean that the check had stretched throughout the first year of Trump's presidency.

The budget bill would not replace a lapsed immigration programme known as Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) that afforded some 800,000 young immigrants protection from deportation and work permits.
