The US Senate unanimously passed the budget for two days. It is reported by The Washington Post.
The decision to temporarily fund the federal government will allow the United States to avoid a shutdown, an indefinite shutdown of federal agencies. In order to prevent such a development of events, US President Donald Trump must sign a two-day budget by 08:00 Moscow time. Earlier, the bill had already been passed by the House of Representatives.
On Sunday, the US Congress will again attempt to pass a longer draft budget, calculated before the end of the current fiscal year. It is noted that disagreements in Congress arose over the adoption of a package of measures to help citizens in connection with the coronavirus pandemic, the total volume of which should be $ 900 billion.
Earlier, Trump confirmed his intentions to block the draft defense budget approved by the US Congress. The President believed that China would benefit the most from him and promised to veto.
