• The government will shut down at midnight Eastern Time if lawmakers fail to get an agreement on some kind of spending bill.
• On Thursday night, the House passed a short-term extension that would fund the government until mid-February.
• In the Senate, Democrats appear ready to block any deal, gambling that President Trump will have to offer concessions to avoid a shutdown.
‘Shutdown coming?,” Trump asks, as he delays Florida trip.
Mr. Trump canceled plans to travel to his Florida resort on Friday and will stay in Washington until a spending bill is passed, a White House official said Friday morning.
In an early-morning Twitter post on Friday, he put pressure on Democrats to keep the federal government open.
Democrats face risks if they block the bill.
Senate Republicans are set to test whether Democrats will make good on their promise to move the government toward a shutdown. But Democrats appear intent on securing concessions that would, among other things, protect from deportation young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children, increase domestic spending, aid Puerto Rico and bolster the government’s response to the opioid epidemic.
