US President Donald Trump signed a package of spending bills funding veterans, military construction and Energy Department programs for 2019 in Las Vegas on Friday.

Speaking to the veterans at VA Southern Nevada Healthcare System, Trump said the bill "will renovate military bases and provide great world-class care to the veterans."

Trump called the movement one more promise that his administration is keeping. "We've gonna go over them in a minute, but they are some reforms set to deliver for our great veterans just the way I said I would constantly on the campaign trail. You back me and I back you, that's the way it works," Trump added.

The three-bill package includes $86.5 billion (£ 66.1 billion) for the Department of Veterans Affairs, the largest dollar amount ever for VA.
