Trump caves, signs bill to reopen United States government

US President Donald Trump announcing the deal

"Yeah I think he actually is", Mulvaney said. "But we hope that by the end of this week all of the back pay will be made up, and of course the next payroll will go out on time". Lindsey Graham, had said just three weeks ago that giving in on the border wall would probably mark "the end of his presidency". "He does take this very seriously".

One White House official described Trump's decision to reopen the government as "clearing the deck" for executive action rather than a retreat.

Trump has floated the idea of a national emergency before, something that would receive opposition from Democrats and some Republicans.

President Trump announces a deal to temporarily reopen the government, in the Rose Garden of the White House, on Friday.

But the US President warned his battle with the Democrat-led house of representatives is not over and said the government would shut down again if "we don't get a fair deal from Congress".

"Trust is earned, & Washington can use more of it. POTUS trusted Sen Schumer & Spkr Pelosi & the promise that we can negotiate border security funding in the next 3 weeks", tweeted Sen.

The Fox Business host has frequently been touted by Trump in tweets and been given shout outs during times when he offers high praise to the president.

Public opinion polls show that the public blames Trump and Republicans more than Democrats for the shutdown.

CNN has been reporting all week that the White House has been working on declaring a national emergency and would get funds to build the wall from various government sources, including the military.

The longest government shutdown in United States history finally ended on Friday, but now, statements from acting White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney suggest Trump is willing to shut down the government yet again, CBS News reported.

Not many politicians have gone up against Trump and emerged victorious, with their dignity intact. But he says Trump is prepared to do either.

In coming weeks, a bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers will consider border spending as part of the legislative process and may seek help from outside experts. "Many of them spoke out publicly that they are actually starting to agree with him on the necessity for a barrier on the southern border, and they had come to us and said, "Look, we agree with you, you're winning the battle on the importance of a barrier on the southern border, but we simply can not work with you" while the government is closed. But Mulvaney said the US leader would secure the border "with or without Congress", including by declaring a national emergency, if he has to.

Democrats opposed his demand, triggering a five-week standoff that damaged the economy, hurt many federal workers and tested Americans' patience with delays to air travel, closures of national parks and other disruptions.

"But I think what we simply do", he added, "is go to the Democrats and say, 'Look, are you telling the people the truth?"

The editorial then attacked Trump's wall supporters - who have now turned on him - who claim they care about border security but are just cashing in on the racist sentiments of his supporters.

The Trump administration asked federal department heads to reopen offices in a "prompt and orderly manner", saying that furloughed employees could return to work.
