After 34 days 21 hours and 18 minutes of partial administrative shutdown in the United States. Nearly 35 days in which employees of eight ministries and subordinate agencies were not paid for their work, had to stay at home or get sick. Nearly 35 days in which museums and national parks were closed and officials had to go to tables to get food, because they could not afford it without a paycheck to shop.

After nearly 35 days, the longest “shutdown” in US history is over, as US President Donald Trump accepted funding for the closed ministries on Friday. Since the beginning of December last year, he had refused to do so if the financing did not include the $ 5.7 billion, he wants for a wall on the Mexican border.

 

But he does not have the money either. That’s why he only promised to keep the government open until 15 February. If there was no agreement in the dispute over the wall financing until then, there would be either a repeated “shutdown” – or he would call out the national emergency to “take care of this emergency, ” he said Friday afternoon in front of the White House in a speech.

 

“We really have no choice but to build a mighty wall or steel barrier,” he clarified his conviction that the matter was not settled yet. The compromise now foresees the creation of a commission in which senators and deputies of both parties should negotiate how the opposition can be resolved.

Speaking to journalists, Trump also turned to the Democrats, who steadfastly refused to grant money for the wall. So, he said, you do not need a concrete wall “from lake to shimmering lake – we never needed”. Parts could also be replaced by “smart walls”, that is drones and another sensor technology.

 

Democrats had suggested earlier in the week that they would eventually provide the 5.7 billion, but only in general as a means of border security and not building a wall.
