Trump: I'm Glad Democrats Came to Their Senses on the Shutdown

After three days of negotiations and a brief government shutdown, President Trump applauded Democrats for "coming to their senses" Monday afternoon. 

"I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children," Trump said in a statement. "As I have always said, once the Government is funded, my Administration will work toward solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration. We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country."

After announcing Democrats would vote to reopen the government, Minority Leader Chuck Schumer took to Twitter and issued a warning to Republicans.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell wasted no time responding.

Meanwhile, we're waiting to see exactly what kind of immigration "proposal" will be turned into legislation capable of passing the Senate, House and receiving a signature from President Trump.
