BREAKING: Deal Reached to Reopen Government WITHOUT Wall Funds?

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Reports spread via the Drudge Report Friday that the longest government shutdown in history may end today with a temporary reopening of the government with no concession on border wall funds from Democrats.

““SOURCE: SHUTDOWN AGREEMENT REACHED,” the Drudge headline blared. “ANNOUNCEMENT SET FOR 1 PM.”

“GOVT TO REOPEN ‘TEMPORARILY’,” it added.

President Donald Trump is scheduled to give a press conference this afternoon.

From The Hill:

“The White House has repeatedly refused to officially confirm anything, but preparations are being made for some kind of announcement in the Rose Garden. A riser has been set up, ropes put in place, and a TelePrompter has been placed facing the Oval Office.

Pressure to reach a deal increased on Republicans and the White House Thursday after several GOP senators pressed Vice President Pence to end the shutdown during a closed-door luncheon. 

Later, six GOP senators voted for a stopgap measure to reopen the government. 

On Friday, flights were temporarily halted at New York’s La Guardia Airport because of staffing issues related to the shutdown.”
