Trump wounded by border wall retreat in deal to end shutdown

Trump wounded by border wall retreat in deal to end shutdownPresident Donald Trump, who famously vowed to negotiate big deals in the White House, came out of a government shutdown battle on Friday politically wounded and outmaneuvered by U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi. With Americans exasperated over the 35-day shutdown’s impact on everyday life, including air travel, Trump finally gave in and agreed to reopen the government until Feb. 15, without getting the $ 5.7 billion he had demanded for a border wall. “Perhaps he lost the short-term battle,” one senior administration official said.
