President Donald Trump has asked Congress to reinstate the line-item veto, which was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court in the 1990s.

Mr Trump made the call for that governing power — which allows a president to veto specific portions of a bill or budget, while leaving the rest in-tact — as he complained that he was not completely satisfied with a budget bill that he signed.

The president chided Congress for not including as much military funding as he would like, saying that he was upset that there was not a dramatic increase to that sector even though Congress included funding for “things that are really a wasted sum of money”.
