Nah, don't be silly. The only green thing that drives Trump is MONEY.

Basic civics. If a president doesn't veto a budget bill, and signs it, it's his, or someday maybe, hers.

Unless of course the veto is overturned. But, at the end of the day the Congress controls the purse not the President

But if a Democrat is in the White House, the deficit tends to shrink, if a Republican is in the White House, the deficit grows. The data is highly correlated to those propositions.
And before you go off on "Who controlled congress?"
The correlation between rising and falling deficits is about 50%.
In other words no statistical correlation.

I guess your way above providing any sources. I loved your cute little dismissal. Sorry, facts are facts and you can not dismiss them.

@ Goober....there should be a line-item veto....Only Clinton had that advantage .... until the SCOTUS found it buried somewhere that a Line-item veto was unConstitutional
