After the longest shutdown in US history, a deal between congressional leaders has been reached between Democrats and Republicans at least until February 15.

The deal means that, for the next three weeks at least, closed government departments will open, and some 800-thousand people will go back to work.

"I am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the government shut down" says Donald Trump.

He made the announcement at a news conference outside the White House.
