Trump surrenders to Democrats, ends government shutdown

President Donald Trump, speaking in the Rose Garden of the White House, announced he was re-opening the government for three weeks

 

US President Donald Trump has capitulated to his Democratic opponents by agreeing to re-open the US government without securing any money for a wall on the border with Mexico.

Just a day after vowing he would not cave in to demands that he end the government shutdown, Trump announced he would re-open the government for three weeks of negotiations on border security.

A new poll by The Washington Post and ABC found that Trump’s popularity had weakened during the shutdown, with 37 per cent of the public approving of his job performance and 58 per cent disapproving.
