President Donald Trump finally caved into Democrats after needlessly shutting down the federal government for 35 days.
Trump agreed to re-open the government for three weeks without getting the border wall funds that he has been demanding from the Democrats.
Trump blamed Democrats and Republicans for his shutdown:
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.
Trump falsely claimed that Congress had come around to his way of thinking:
They have said they are for complete border security, and they are finally and fully acknowledged that having barriers, fencing or walls or whatever you want to call it, will be an important part of a bipartisan conference committee of House and Senate lawmakers and leaders will immediately begin reviewing the request of our homeland security experts and experts, they are.
