US shutdown continues, as Democrats pass bills that Trump won’t sign
In a sign of how far apart Republicans and Democrats remained on the border wall funding, the White House has announced that President Donald Trump will even not sign the bills that the newly constituted Democratic-controlled House of Representatives had passed for the reopening of the shuttered federal agencies.
If either of the two legislative measures “were presented to the President, his advisors would recommend that he veto the bill”, the White House said in a statement Thursday evening, hours before the House passed two separate legislative measures to end the partial shutdown and reopen the affected departments.
A six-bill package fully funded departments of agriculture, transportation, state, treasury, interiors for a year, and the second bill provided temporary funding to the department of homeland security till February, to allow more time for negotiations over President Donald Trump’s wall along the border with Mexico.
