President Trump and the Democrats have reached a deal to end the government shutdown and reopen the government ... for 3 weeks.
The Prez announced the deal Friday during a press conference in front of the White House ... ending the shutdown that had dragged on for an unprecedented 35 days.
The deal does not include funding for Trump's beloved border wall ... and the temporary end to the shutdown comes as thousands of federal workers missed another paycheck during the longest government shutdown in history.
The timing of the deal comes after increased urgency to fund the government following Friday's decision by the Federal Aviation Administration to temporarily halt flights into and out of LaGuardia Airport in NYC because of staffing shortages as a result of the shutdown.
Trump says he's signing a bill to fund the government for 3 weeks until Feb. 15 ... and POTUS says federal workers will receive back pay for their work during the shutdown.
