WASHINGTON - President Donald Trump capped months of political drama Friday by announcing he will sign a bill to fund the government, avoiding another government shutdown.
Trump is also taking the extraordinary action of declaring a national emergency to secure additional funding for his proposed border wall that congressional Democrats refused to give him.
The president explained his move in a Rose Garden announcement Friday morning.
