Government shutdown ends with Trump signature on spending bill


WASHINGTON — President Trump signed a $400 billion budget deal Friday, hours after the House passed it in a pre-dawn vote, reopening the federal government after it was partially shut down for the second time in less than a month.

The House voted 240-186, with 73 Democrats and 167 Republicans voting in favor. The hours-long, middle-of-the-night shutdown was the shortest since the 1970s, according to the Congressional Research Service.

President Trump tweeted Friday that he signed the legislation for the government to officially reopen, just as the workday started for millions of federal workers.

“Just signed Bill. Our Military will now be stronger than ever before,” the president tweeted. “We love and need our Military and gave them everything — and more. First time this has happened in a long time. Also means JOBS, JOBS, JOBS!”
