Most extended shutdown in US history ended

Posted by Maryam Yamin on January 26th, 2019

 On the 35th day of the budget dispute, Trump has signed a transitional solution of the Democrats - and waived his wall for the time being. But the next crisis is imminent written by eBuzz Feed.

Trump calls on Congress $ 5.7 billion (about 4.32 billion pounds) for the construction of the border wall. On Friday, the president threatened to re-shut down or declare a "national emergency," should the funds not be approved. The Democrats, whose votes Trump needs in Congress, still resist financing a wall.

The White House spokeswoman, Sarah Sanders, wrote on Twitter Friday that in 21 days Trump would move forward with plans to build the Wall - "with or without Democrats". Trump is of the opinion that he can have the wall built without the consent of the Congress when he calls a "national emergency". This is controversial and should be challenged in court.

Trump said Friday in the White House Rose Garden, "I am very proud to announce that we have arrived a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government." However, the agreement was widely regarded as the defeat of Trump because it corresponds to a Democratic proposal.
