The deal reopens the government through February 15, while also creating a bipartisan, bicameral committee charged with negotiating an agreement on border security as part of a new spending bill for the Homeland Security Department.

Trump also signaled on Friday that if he doesn't get the result he wants, he may yet declare a national emergency and re-route federal monies to build the wall on his own.

The president's humbling concession to the new realities of divided government brought the nation's longest government shutdown to an end on its 35th day.

Stories about federal workers in dire straits due to missed paychecks were weighing heavily, too, on Sen.

Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, Mr Trump said federal workers affected by the political standoff, whom he called "incredible patriots", would receive full back-pay.

"I am so proud that you are citizens of our country-when I say 'Make America Great Again, ' it could never be done without you". Then Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who had stayed on the sidelines as Trump battled with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY, agreed to put the theory to a vote.

Pelosi's statement read, "The indictment of Roger Stone makes clear that there was a deliberate, coordinated attempt by top Trump campaign officials to influence the 2016 election and subvert the will of the American people".

The shutdown ended as Democratic leaders had insisted it must - reopen the government first, then talk border security.

About 800,000 government workers have gone with pay for more than a month.

"As this goes ahead, there will be a window for some negotiation, but there is not the appetite - either in Congress or among the American people-for the type of wall that the President and the Trump base desire", Mahaffee said. The package includes funding for more border patrol agents, immigration judges, and scanning equipment at ports of entries.

Vice President Mike Pence had endured a contentious lunch with Republican senators on Thursday, absorbing criticism for having no plan for a way forward.

The White House is preparing a draft proclamation for Trump to declare a national emergency along the southern border and has identified more than $7 billion in potential funds for his signature border wall, should he go that route, CNN reported Thursday, citing internal documents.

A Border Patrol Agent takes down information of a man and his son who crossed the Rio Grande River from Mexico into the United States in Hidalgo County, Texas, on May 26, 2017. But it earned more support than Trump's plan, even though Republicans control the chamber 53-47. "These barriers are made of steel, have see-through visibility, which is very important, and are equipped with sensors, monitors and cutting-edge technology, including state-of-the-art drones".

Any temporary funding bill would simply extend agency funding at the last fiscal year's levels and would include some money for border security - but not a wall.

Calling such the potential move drastic and constitutionally questionable, Reed said Trump could set a precedent for future presidents to "employ this tactic on all manner of "emergencies" in order to fund their pet projects". The aide said the House could pass the measure as soon as later Friday if Republicans agree to hold a vote.
