A White House statement on Friday said President Trump "has now reviewed the final version and, based on its responsiveness to his negotiations, approves the bill and intends to sign it".
The White House downplayed a new Washington Post report that President Trump personally dictated his eldest son's misleading statement about meeting with a Russian lawyer during the 2016 campaign.
While Sanders denied that Trump "dictated" the document, she acknowledged that he "weighed in and offered suggestions" on a statement that claimed that in the meeting, Trump Jr. and other participants "primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children".
President Donald Trump personally dictated the statement his son gave on his talks with a Russian lawyer during the election campaign, USA media report. "The response came from Donald Trump Jr. and - I'm sure - in consultation with his lawyer". That statement turned out to be misleading.
That the president was involved while flying back from the G20 on Air Force One with the initial Trump Jr. response had been previously reported.
The Washington Post, which broke the story Monday evening, notes the statement, "emphasized that the subject of the meeting was 'not a campaign issue at the time'".
"This was... unnecessary", one presidential adviser told the Post on condition of anonymity.
The president's advisers wanted to release a statement that was truthful so there was no chance it was repudiated later.
Throughout the investigation, the president denied any involvement in or knowledge of the meeting. Trump Jr. responded with a statement claiming the meeting was "primarily" about adoption and its relation to U.S. sanctions on Russian Federation under the Magnitsky Act.
