Temporary Deal Reached to Reopen Government

WASHINGTON (AP) – President Donald Trump says he’ll sign legislation shortly to reopen shuttered government departments for three weeks – until Feb. 15.

Trump’s action would end what has become a record, 35-day partial shutdown. Some 800,000 federal workers have had to work without pay or have been kept from doing their jobs as Trump and congressional Democrats were locked in a stalemate over the billions of dollars that Trump has demanded to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall.
