To avoid 'shutdown' Trump signed budget for two days

According to Interfax, US President Donald Trump has signed a two-day budget to avoid a midnight Friday local time cutoff of funding for federal agencies (“shutdown”)

“This gives Democratic and Republican lawmakers an opportunity to continue negotiations on a $900 billion pandemic economic support bill, as well as a $1.4 trillion government spending bill through September 2021”,  – the statement said.

A week ago, Trump had already signed an interim budget approved by Congress that extended funding for the US government until 18 December.
