Trump ends shutdown signing measure to reopen government through February 8

The Senate passed the three-week spending bill, 81-18, that will fund the government until February 8. This is the time for Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan to take a huge victory lap - by funding border security in a bill that does nothing else.

Meanwhile, White House Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley denied the validity of Schumer's deal withdrawal during a subsequent appearance on Fox News.

"The thought was that we could come to an agreement that afternoon, the president would announce his support and then the Senate and House would get it done and it would be on the president's desk".

Democrats had been holding out for a firmer commitment to provide protections for some 700,000 younger immigrants brought illegally to the U.S.as children.

As part of any agreement on DACA, he has demanded the construction of a wall on the southwest border as well as changes to the immigration system-including an end to chain migration and the Diversity Visa lottery.

"I think that would be an enormous mistake", Cruz added.

The deal is the culmination of days of negotiations as both parties blame each other for the government closing that began at 12.01am last Saturday.

However, his promise was not enough for many Democrats, and on Monday morning, moderate Senate Democrats were still pressing for more in exchange for their votes to end the shutdown. Among independents, the numbers favored Democrats, with 64 percent faulting either the president or Republicans and just 31 percent pointing their finger at Democrats.

He said the biggest loser is Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, who shut down the government "for literally no reason" and got nothing in return.

I get it, Republicans don't have a filibuster-proof majority in the Senate. "I look forward to working with my colleagues as we continue to grow the economy and strengthen our national security".

Trump is expected to sign the bill Monday evening, allowing the government to completely reopen on Tuesday. Trump said Congress should act to pass legislation extending the program.

-Longer-term funding for the government.

For the budget to pass, it needs the backing of sixty of the one hundred members of the Senate.

The White House said it is ready to negotiate with the Democrats even if there is differences between the two.
