The government shutdown prompted animosity between the Trump administration and congressional Democrats, who now control the House of Representatives, with the main sticking point being $5.7 billion United States in funding for a border wall on the USA southern border.
On Friday, President Trump agreed to temporarily reopen the federal government with nothing allocated for a border wall, after shutting down the government for 35 days in an attempt to secure money for a border wall.

Trump said Friday that he wanted negotiations for border security to continue ahead of the February 15 deadline, and threatened to use the "very powerful weapon" of declaring a national emergency if negotiations came to naught.
A statement from the National Active and Retired Federal Employees Association advised that Federal workers would be cleared to return to work once President Trump signs the short-term funding bill into law. "We don't like the fact that a president might use a shutdown as a negotiating tool, so if you open the government up, we'll negotiate with you in good faith on a border barrier". By backing himself into the shutdown with no way out, Davis said, Trump displayed a lack of discipline from the start.
Mulvaney added that's a "marked difference from where the Democrat leadership was, where they said they wouldn't talk to us about border security ever".

In December, when Trump offered signals that he might be willing to back off his threat to shut down the government over funding for a wall, conservative allies and pundits accused him of waffling on his campaign promise. This one occurred almost two full years before the 2020 elections, leaving time for other events and issues to dominate when Trump runs for re-election and House and Senate control are at stake.
