The House has passed a bill which would guarantee backpay to federal workers who have been impacted by the shutdown.
The measure passed in the Senate last night. According to Mitch McConnell, Trump has said he will sign it.
S&P Global estimate that the border wall shutdown has already cost the economy $3.6bn, and in another two weeks will have cost $6bn.
Keen watchers will note that $6bn is more than the $5.7bn that Trump is demanding to build the wall.
