After a 35-day shutdown, the longest shutdown in U.S. history, President Donald Trump conceded to Democrats and agrees to reopen the federal government for three weeks.
The government shutdown took place after the Congressional Democrats have rejected 45’s demands for $5.7 billion of funding to build a wall on the U.S. – Mexico border.
While negotiations are still in place for border security, the end of the shutdown will allow over 800,000 employees to return back to work.
“If we do not get a fair deal from Congress, the government will either shut down on February 15 again…. Or I will use the powers given to me under the Constitutions of the United States to address this emergency,” Trump says.
