WASHINGTON, Sept 20 (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday slammed the Republican-led Congress for not including money for his border wall in its spending bill as U.S. lawmakers push their plan to fund the government before the fiscal year ends this month.

In a post on Twitter, Trump called the current spending bill "ridiculous" for not including money for his proposed wall along the U.S. southern border and blamed Democrats for blocking it, urging his fellow Republicans "to get tough." (Reporting by Susan Heavey; Editing by Doina Chiacu)
