US shutdown could stretch into January, Trump aide warns

ANI

US Federal government shut down over budget spending could continue right up to the opening of the next Congress on 3 January, a Trump aide has said. 

The shutdown began at midnight Friday after opposition Democrats resisted President Donald Trump's demand for 5.7 billion dollars for his Mexico border wall project. Mr Trump's acting chief of staff, Mick Mulvaney, suggested Democrats were beholden to their left wing. 

It is the third partial government shutdown of the year, even though Trump's own Republican Party still controls both the House of Representatives and the Senate. However, Democrats will take control of the House on January 3.

Mr Trump in a tweet said the only way to stop drugs, gangs, human trafficking, criminal elements and much else from coming into the US is with a Wall or Barrier. He also said he was in the White House "working hard" to find a solution but that it could be a long stay. 

Nearly 400,000 workers have been sent home while an additional 420,000 whose jobs were deemed essential -- including Border Patrol officers and airport security workers -- are remaining on the job without pay.
