Washington D.C [USA], Jan 23 (ANI): The United States President Donald Trump on Monday welcomed the end of the three-day government shutdown and took a jibe at the Democrats, saying that they had 'come to their senses'.
"I am pleased that Dems in Congress have come to their senses," Trump said in a statement.
The US President added that he was ready to make a deal with the Democrats on immigration only if it was "good" for the country. He maintained that his priority now was to solve the problem of illegal immigration, the Hill reported.
McConnell attempted to schedule the vote late on Sunday night that would end the shutdown, but Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer objected to it since the Republicans and Democrats were yet to reach an agreement.
McConnell said that the Congress must stop victimising the American people and get back to work soon.
The House and Senate lawmakers met throughout the day on Sunday to end the government shutdown with both chambers hoping to strike a deal on spending and immigration that would reopen federal agencies soon. (ANI)
