Did Donald Trump cave in to the Democrats on border security?

US President Donald Trump had warned the longest US government shutdown in history could go on for years unless Congress gave him money to build a border wall with Mexico.

After 35 days, the president has signed a bill to end the standoff – at least for now.

Government departments will reopen for three weeks while congressional leaders hammer out reforms to border security.

But the deal doesn’t include the $5.7bn Trump wants for the wall.

So what happens next?
