US Government Shutdown Ends - Trump Signs a Temporary Bill
US government partial shutdown for more than 30 days had created a history in the US which had started amidst Trump's demand for granting funds for building a wall. However, on Friday, Trump has signed legislation to temporarily end the longest-ever partial shutdown of the US government, which has left hundreds of thousands of federal employees without pay for more than a month.
Post that, Hundreds of thousands of federal employees were being asked to return to work and "reopen offices in a prompt and orderly manner. The government is opened for 3 weeks due to increasing pressure.
Less than 24 hours prior to the signing of legislation, Trump at White House Rose Garde demanded that any solution from Congress should include a “large down-payment” for his long-promised wall along the southern border Signing of this legislation is a huge step down for Trump who was adamant in going by his promises.
However, he reminded Americans he had a “powerful alternative”, threatening to declare a national emergency if a deal for wall funding is not reached before the next deadline to fund the government.“Let me be very clear,” Trump said, “we really have no choice but to build a powerful wall or steel barrier. If we don’t get a fair deal from Congress, the government will either shut down on 15 February again, or I will use the powers afforded to me under the law and the constitution of the US to address this emergency.”
This reopening of the federal government will allow around 800000 people to join their jobs back. However, it is still a question on what happens next post ghe 3 week time period for which this temporary legislation was signed.
