Axar.az reports citing to BBC The bipartisan deal boosts military spending but does not include funding for

President Donald Trump's proposed wall on the Mexico border, they say.
The reported $1 trillion deal (£770bn) needs to be approved by lawmakers.

On Friday Congress approved a stop-gap spending bill that averted a government shutdown at midnight on that day.

That gave Congress one more week to work out federal spending over the last five months of the fiscal year.
Lawmakers are expected to vote on the package in the coming days, the Associated Press reports.
