WASHINGTON, Jan 25 (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump on Friday said a deal had been reached on legislation that would reopen the U.S. government through Feb. 15.
“I am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government,” Trump said at the White House.
Trump said in the meantime a bipartisan committee of lawmakers would meet to discuss the nation’s border security needs.
The government closure was in its 35th day on Friday and was threatening the economy as hundreds of thousands of federal workers missed a second paycheck on Friday.
