President Donald Trump signed a short term financial budget bill to end the longest ever US government shutdown of 35 days. The short term deal was approved for 3 weeks, until 15th February.
The spending bill does not include Trump’s request for US$ 5.7 billion for the border wall between United states and Mexico. Remember the border wall was a poll promise during President Trump’s campaign.
The US president conceded after mounting pressure over the ongoing shutdown. Mr. Trump said, “We have reached a deal to end the shutdown, I will sign a bill to open our government for three weeks. Over the next 21 days, I expect that both Democrats and Republicans will operate in good faith”
Meanwhile both the parties Democrats and the Republicans will debate the finances for the wall. The negotiations haven’t been gone anywhere since the shutdown began. Throughout the Democrats maintained that they support the border security measure, but not a wall.
The reopening of the govrenmnet shutters means that over 800,000 people can expect their paychecks soon.
