President Donald Trump praised congressional Republicans on Thursday evening for passing a government funding bill that is widely expected to have no chance to pass the U.S. Senate.

"Thank you to our GREAT Republican Members of Congress for your VOTE to fund Border Security and the Wall (sci)," Trump said on Twitter.

"The final numbers were 217-185 and many have said that the enthusiasm was greater than they have ever seen before," Trump argued.

The yes votes were less than half of the 435 member legislative body.

"So proud of you all. Now on to the Senate!" he added.
