Donald Trump triggered a partial government shutdown over a big and beautiful $5-billion wall, and the national nightmare has finally come to an end after 35 days, and Ann Coulter is not pleased with the announcement.
On Friday, the president stood at the Rose Garden of the White House, and he announced that he has agreed with the Democrats led by Nancy Pelosi to reopen the government through February 15.
The president will end the longest running government shutdown in history without money for his border wall.
Mr. Trump explained why he has decided to sign the short-term funding bill proposed by both parties.
He stated: “I am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government.”
The Republican politician said he has decided to put the American people who are often living paycheck-to-paycheck first.
Indeed over 800,000 furloughed employees were struggling and depending on food banks, charities, and pawn shops to eat and pay for the roofs over their heads.
The real estate mogul shared: "After 36 days of spirited debate and dialogue, I have seen and heard from enough Democrats and Republicans that they are willing to put partisanship aside, I think, and put the security of the American people first.”
A bipartisan committee of House and Senate lawmakers is expected to continue to meet and hammer out a deal to eventually fund the wall across the U.S. and Mexico border, according to Mr. Trump.
POTUS affirmed: “We’ll work with the Democrats and negotiate, and if we can’t do that, then we’ll do a – obviously we’ll do the emergency because that’s what it is. It’s a national emergency.”
The conservative commentator said in a tweet: "Good news for George Herbert Walker Bush: As of today, he is no longer the biggest wimp ever to serve as President of the United States."
Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced after Trump’ delivered his remarks about the shutdown that she will back any plans that support the wall funding.
Pelosi said: “Our unity is our power, and that maybe is what the president underestimated.”
