“It looks bad”: the United States suspended the work of government agencies

In the United States at midnight on January 20, when Moscow was already 8 in the morning, was partially suspended the work of government agencies. The President of the United States Donald trump wrote in his Twitter that it “looks bad” for defense and security. All this happened due to disputes between Democrats and Republicans in the Senate, which failed to adopt a resolution on the financing of the government.

The bill successfully passed the House of representatives, but was rejected by the Senate, BBC reports. While the two parties fail to reach a compromise, the money for the work of state institutions will not be released. The main dispute occurred due to the fact that the Democrats in the Senate demanded to take measures for the protection of children of undocumented migrants from deportation, as the administration trump insists on these measures.

Now about half of the two million civil servants will stay at home on unpaid leave, well, if by Monday the issue is not resolved.

Despite the fact that these measures have not touched the army and the postal service, the US President Donald trump have already tweeted that he cares about the security of the country.

“It’s not looking good for our great defence and security at a very dangerous southern border,” – said in a statement.

In addition to the army and mail will not limit its activities to the state medical institutions, prisons, energy, different kinds of emergency services.

Recall that the shutdown or a government shutdown has happened in the history of the United States, for example, in 1995, and then in 2013 under President Barack Obama. Then state institutions were not working 16 days. Then the House of Representatives, controlled by Republicans, entered into a dispute with the Senate, where most Democrats about health care reform proposed by Obama. Republicans rests on the fact that reform will require a huge cash infusion, and government debt already exceeds GDP. Then more than two weeks has not worked all national parks and Federal museums in the country.
