US Government in shutdown After Senate Fails To Pass New Budget

Web-Desk (January 20, 2018): The US government has started to shut down after Congress failed to overcome a bitter standoff over spending and immigration, marking a choatic end to Donald Trump’s first year as president.Despite last minute bipartisan meetings, the bill to fund the government until 16 February did not receive the required 60 votes.

The House of Representatives voted 230-197 on Thursday night to extend funding until next month, but the measure failed to pass it from the Senate.

President Trump accused the Democrats of putting politics above the interests of the American people.

Both the Republican and Democrat congressional leaders say they will keep talking, and the White House budget chief has expressed optimism that a resolution will be found before Monday.
