U.S. government to shut down in fight over Trump's wall

The U.S. government is heading toward a partial shutdown at midnight on Friday after President Donald Trump's fellow Republicans in the Senate failed to muster the votes needed to approve $5 billion he has demanded for a border wall fiercely opposed by Democrats.

U.S. government to shut down in fight over Trump's wall

The U.S. House of Representatives has adjourned, making a partial government shutdown all but certain.

House lawmakers left the Capitol on Friday (December 22) without an agreement on budget spending, leaving funding for key government agencies to lapse at the stroke of midnight, and furlough hundreds of thousands of federal workers days before Christmas.

Republican House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy informed lawmakers on Friday that they'll be given a 24-hour notice before a vote to end the shutdown, pushing a reopening of government until at least Saturday night.

House and Senate lawmakers left on Friday, amid last-minute talks between White House officials and congressional leaders.

Trump's fellow Republicans in the Senate failed to muster the votes needed to approve billions of taxpayers' dollars for a border wall that's fiercely opposed by the Democrats.
