washington - The US Senate has formally approved the budget proposal of almost $ 1.2 billion (EUR 1066 billion) by a large majority on Thursday. With that amount, the Trump government can advance until the end of September. The president can now sign his Friday signature deadline.
The Senate agreed with 79 to 18 votes. The budget provides for higher spending on Defense and Security, but also meets the important wishes of the Democrats.
There is no money available to start building the wall on the border with Mexico. The House of Representatives agreed on the budget for the rest of the fiscal year on Wednesday.
