VIDEO: Trump Announces Deal To Temporarily End U.S. Government Shutdown

The deal re-opens the U.S. government for three weeks, and includes no wall funding.

In what many are calling a ‘cave’ in his showdown with Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi, U.S. President Donald Trump has announced that he’ll support a deal to re-open the government for three weeks.

Trump had previously said that he wouldn’t accept any deal unless it included $5.7 Billion USD for a wall on the U.S. border with Mexico.

Pelosi had said she wouldn’t give any funding for a wall, and wouldn’t negotiate on anything until the government is re-opened.

Thus, the deal represents a significant concession by Trump to Pelosi and the Democrats.

However, Trump also said that if a deal on border wall funding is not struck within the next three weeks, he will either shut down the government again or declare a national emergency to procure wall funds from other parts of the government – which would certainly be challenged in court.

After his comments, Trump did not take questions, and did not respond to shouted questions regarding the arrest and indictment of his former associate Roger Stone.

Unfortunately Trump will be a one term President. America like Canada is being flushed down the toilet by left wing liberal socialists.

Do you think Trump is a left wing liberal socialist? How about some examples of Trump’s left wing liberal socialism?

he didn’t cave he is smarter then they think, he probably done it so the government is open and he can have his speech to the union in the congress hall on the 29th !!!

That and he is clearly showing he has exhausted all options before using the National Emergency. The Govt is now open as the Dems required before they would talk, employees are now being paid. Thus if the Dems do not support the wall/barrier as they have in the past , build it and stop the Illegals.
