US President Donald Trump had warned the longest US government shutdown in history could go on for years unless Congress gave him money to build a border wall with Mexico.

After 35 days, the president has signed a bill to end the standoff – at least for now.

Government departments will reopen for three weeks while congressional leaders hammer out reforms to border security.

But the deal doesn’t include the $5.7bn Trump wants for the wall.

So what happens next?
