The U.S. government has partially suspended working due to a fierce dispute over the demands of President Donald Trump that the Congress allocate five billion dollars to build a wall along the border with Mexico, Reuters reported.
‘After failing to strike a budget deal on Friday, congressional leaders and the White House pledged to keep talking through the weekend in search of a deal to end the shutdown ahead of the Christmas holiday,’ reads the message.
The decision could not be reached even after the last 11-hour “breakthrough,” when high-level representatives of the Trump administration tried to convince the party leadership in Congress to find a sustainable compromise.
Earlier, the U.S. Senate adopted the interim budget of the country until February 8, 2019. It is emphasized that the document does not indicate the five billion dollars that Donald Trump demanded for the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico. He noted that the wall will be 'beautiful' and will provide the country with the security that 'citizens deserve.’
