Chatham House

From 22 December 2018 to 25 January 2019 the US government experienced the longest federal government shutdown in its history. This came as a result of a failure by both Republicans and Democrats to agree on $5.8 billion of funding for a wall at the Mexican border - a key promise made by Donald Trump during his 2016 presidential campaign. Although the 35-day standoff was eventually ended by the president by signing into law a funding package to temporarily reopen the federal government, congress have yet to broker a compromise on the border wall and the threat of another shutdown remains present.
