President Trump announces temporary deal to reopen government

President Trump just finished addressing the nation about the partial government shut down.

Speaking from the Rose Garden, the President announced that a deal has been reached to reopen the government.

The President will sign a bill to reopen the government for three weeks, until Feb. 15th,  and all employees will receive their back pay. Over the next three weeks, Democrats and Republicans will work together for a border security package that the President plans to sign into law.

The President addressed the wall, saying “we don’t need 2,000 miles of concrete wall” but that no security plan can work without a physical barrier. There was no mention of the money that the President is asking for the wall, instead he said if the permanent deal is not what he wants, the government will shut down again in February or he will use Presidential power to declare a national emergency.
