President Donald Trump announced Friday he's reached a short-term deal to reopen the government for 3 weeks, ending longest government shutdown in U.S. history. Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, Trump said he will sign legislation shortly to reopen shuttered government departments for three weeks, until Feb. 15. Trump's action would bring an end to what has been a record, 35-day federal government shutdown. Some 800,000 federal workers have either been working without pay or have been kept from doing their jobs as Trump and congressional Democrats were locked in a stalemate over funding for Trump's U.S.-Mexico border wall. Trump spoke at the White House on Friday as intensifying delays at some of the nation's busiest airports and widespread disruptions brought new urgency to efforts to break the impasse.
White House noncommittal on Senate shutdown bill

(805) 423-2509

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders Wednesday declined to "get into hypotheticals" when asked if President Donald Trump would support a bill in the Senate that has already passed the Democratic-controlled House reopening government through Feb. 8, with no wall money, to give bargainers time to talk. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell scheduled two votes to end the showdown on Thursday, a day before some 800,000 federal workers are due to miss a second paycheck. The first is rejected by Democrats and unlikely to move forward. The second is for the bill already passed by the House to reopen the government for two weeks while negotiations continue on a permanent solution. The White House isn't committing Trump to signing that bill if it passes, but Sanders also didn't say that Trump would veto the measure. Meanwhile, the White House is moving forward with plans for President Trump to deliver his State of the Union speech next week in front of a joint session of Congress - despite a letter from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi requesting he delay it. Sanders said Pelosi cited security concerns when she made her request, but said the Secret Service and Department of Homeland Security "who would have jurisdiction over whether or not the capital is safe for the president to visit have addressed those concerns" and satisfied them. The president cannot speak in front of a joint session of Congress without a resolution by both the House and the Senate specifying the date and time for receiving an address from the president. At this point, whether such a resolution would pass remains unclear.

Over 70,000 march for the climate in Brussels

At least 70,000 people marched on January 27 in Brussels, braving the cold and rain to urge politicians to uphold their promises on countering climate change. Chanting and holding placards with slogans such as, "Stop denying the Earth's dying" and "What I stand for is what I stand on," demonstrators walked through the streets of the Belgian capital towards the European Parliament building to send a message about climate change to European lawmakers. A similar demonstration took place in Brussels last December, where organisers called for "ambitious" climate policies to limit global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius in line with goals set by the Paris Agreement in 2015 and urged for more renewable energy, more cycling paths and cleaner air, through "a socially just transition". It was the fourth climate change rally in two months in the Belgian capital that attracted at least 10,000 people: a similar march last month also saw 70,000 demonstrators and on January 24 some 35,000 school children and students skipped class to take to the streets with their climate demands. Trains from across the nation were so clogged that thousands of protesters failed to reach the march in time and organizers had to begin the march early to ease the congestion. Even though the direct impact on Belgian politics is small because the country is led by a caretaker government, the demonstrations have pushed the issue of climate change up the agenda as parties prepare for national and European Union elections in May.
