The US Congress moved to end a fresh five-hour government shutdown early Friday after the House voted to support a massive bipartisan budget deal that stands to add hundreds of billions of dollars in federal spending on the military, domestic programmes and disaster relief.
The bill passed by a wide margin in the Senate and survived a rebellion of 67 conservative Republicans in the House of Representatives thanks to the support of some Democrats.
He begins the statement with, "This is no way to run a country".
The bill would raise military and domestic spending by nearly $300 billion over the next two years.
Both the house of representatives and the senate approved a bill to keep the government funded until March 23, overcoming opposition from liberal Democrats as well as tea party conservatives to endorse enormous spending increases despite looming trillion-dollar deficits.

GOP leaders announced they would seek to pass the stopgap spending bill by marrying it with a full-year, $659 billion Pentagon spending bill that's a top priority of the party's legion of defense hawks.
House conservatives balked at the measure for increasing the deficit in conjunction to increasing the debt limit, arguing it's fiscally irresponsible.
Federal funding for government services had expired at midnight (05:00 GMT).
Voting in the House is now underway.
The federal government had shut down for the second time in three weeks after Senator Rand Paul of Kentucky held up a vote on the far-reaching budget deal, The Washington Post reported.
The rebellion that simmered among Republicans and Democrats over the budget agreement boiled over when a determined Paul brought the Senate's work to a halt.
Schumer said of the deal in a floor speech: "The budget deal doesn't have everything Democrats want, it doesn't have everything the Republicans want, but it has a great deal of what the American people want".
There's no obvious compromise that could win the 60 votes from Republicans and Democrats needed to prevail in the Senate.
Senators struggled with last-minute objections from Republican Rand Paul, but have now passed the bill, which has gone to the House for its vote.
Congress, after a short government shutdown last night, has approved a two-year budget agreement that would provide an additional $165 billion in defense spending.
"There is probably a lot of blame to go around for the Republicans who are advocating for this debt", Paul said to CNN's Erin Burnett OutFront. "But the amusing thing is you know so often in the media we hear 'we want you to work together.' They are are working together but working together to spend a ton of money". They say Nunes' memo is designed as a distraction from the probe, which is looking into whether Trump's campaign was in any way connected to the Russian interference.
