In turn, the acting head of the White house Mike Mulvaney said that “to remove “shutdown” from the agenda completely impossible.” “The President really believes that we faced on the border with the national security crisis and the humanitarian crisis, and wants to deal with it,” said the official. The President himself Donald trump on his Twitter page accused the Democrats that they “propose to allocate too little money for much-needed wall on the border” with Mexico.

The current “shutdown” – a partial blockage of the US government – began on 22 December 2018 and lasted for 35 days, becoming the longest in the history of the country. On 25 January, the senators and members of the house of representatives of the U.S. Congress have agreed to end the “shutdown” until February 15.
