U.S. shutdown enters its 22nd day

President Donald Trump is refusing to approve the budget until it includes funds for the border wall with Mexico. The Democrats are rejecting his request for almost six billion dollars.

Some 800,000 American workers have remained without pay as around a quarter of the federal government’s administration is not operating until the expenditure plan is approved.
