Trump Finally Agrees To End Shutdown - Without Any Border Wall Money

Trump agrees to reopen the government, ending 35-day shutdown, the longest in U.S. history - without any money for his border wall.

Trump made the announcement in the Rose Garden this morning, Friday the 25th:

"In a short while, I will sign a bill to re-open the government for three weeks, until Feb. 15."

It seems his decision was influenced, as it should be, by the millions of Americans affected by the shutdown, especially the hundreds of thousands of federal employees and their families struggling to make ends meet without a paycheck. 

Trump also announced that he will make sure "all employees receive their back pay very, or as soon as possible," however, there's no telling how long that might actually take.

Although he again threatened to declare a state of emergency (so he can secure funding for his wall without congressional, or popular, approval), it seems that, for now, President Trump might finally be willing to negotiate.
