"Congressional negotiators reach deal on government funding through September"

After weeks of tense negotiations between Republicans and Democrats over the national budget, negotiators finally reached an agreement. Negotiators from both parties approved a massive spending bill late Sunday night. It still needs to be approved by the House and Senate. If it is, it would fund the government through the end of September. The majority of the spending would go towards adding billions of dollars for the Pentagon and border security. There would still leave no money for the wall on the U.S.-Mexico border. Seeing how this affects Trump's promise to build a wall, and seeing how he still plans on funding it will be a very interesting situation to watch in the coming months.
