US President Donald Trump insists the US will still build a wall along its border with Mexico.
Despite ending the longest-ever US government shutdown without securing funds for the project.
On Twitter, Trump said the deal to temporarily reopen government was “in no way a concession” on the wall.
The bi-part-tee-son agreement announced on Friday covers just three weeks.
Trump indicated he might trigger another shutdown or declare a national emergency if his demands are not met.
The Republican president has vowed to reject any budget unless Congress includes $5.7bn to fund his signature campaign pledge.
The Democratic Party, which controls the House of Representatives, has outright refused.
