BORDER/CONGRESS/GOVERNMENT/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT/WALL: “The longest government shutdown in U.S. history came to an end Friday [1-25-19] after President Donald Trump and Congress agreed to temporarily reopen shuttered federal agencies without providing any money for the president’s border wall. Soon after Trump announced the deal Friday afternoon in the Rose Garden, the House and Senate quickly passed legislation on voice votes to fund the government until Feb. 15 in a bid to let negotiators try to work out a larger immigration and border security compromise. Trump signed it later Friday night. The move marks a major reversal for the president, who had insisted for weeks that he wouldn’t reopen the government until lawmakers agreed to fork over more than $5 billion for the border wall. The president’s concession came as the effects of the shutdown, which stretched into its 35th day on Friday, started to dramatically ramp up. As the shutdown’s fifth week came to a close, the East Coast was riven with airline delays and federal workers missed their second paycheck.”
