WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump signed a bill Monday that temporarily ended a three day long government shutdown.

The House and the Senate voted Monday to end the government shutdown, extending the funding for three weeks. The deal was reached by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, after certain assurances were made related to immigration.

CNN reported that the House passed the continuing resolution 266-159.

The bill went to the White House for President Donald Trump’s signature, which officially ended the government shutdown.
