Washington, Agency: Democrats has approved two bills in the parliament to eliminate two weeks of partial government shutdown in the United States. However, the standoff still remains because by both of these bills President Donald Trump will not get the money to make a wall on the Mexico border.
Trump has threatened to take veto against this law. This law is about funding to run the security operations in the country till 8th February and other agencies till September. The Republican-run Senate has said that they will not vote on this law. The new Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, said shortly after casting vote that no money would be made available for the wall of the boundary.
Earlier on Wednesday, the White House rejected the proposal of the opposition Democratic Party to end the shutdown. The White House said that no proposal to end the shutdown without approval of the budget to build a wall on the Mexico border.
In order to fulfill his own election promise to build a wall on the Mexico border, President Donald Trump had demanded a budget of $ 5.7 billion (about Rs 39,000 crore) from Parliament. There is a partial shutdown going on in the United States, due to not being able to get this consent, which affected about eight million federal employees.Rajasthan Tourism App - Welcomes to the land of Sun, Sand and adventures
