U.S. Government Reopens As Clock Starts On Funding Talks

The U.S. government reopened fully on Monday with about 800,000 federal workers returning.

The 35-day shutdown was triggered by President Trump’s demand for a border wall as lawmakers geared up for talks to avoid another standoff in three weeks.

The longest shutdown in U.S. history ended on Friday when President Donald Trump and Congress agreed to temporary government funding - without money for his wall - as effects of the shutdown intensified across the country.

Trump had demanded $5.7 billion toward building his long-promised wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, which he says is necessary to stop illegal immigration, human trafficking and drug smuggling.
