The US federal government was in a state of partial shutdown from 22 December to late January, until US President Donald Trump signed a temporary three-week budget.

US President Donald Trump has delivered his annual State of the Union address before Congress amid the looming possibility of another shutdown that could begin on 15 February if the sides fail to break the impasse over Trump's much-championed border wall proposal.

Despite signing the temporary budget, Trump said that he would continue talks with the Democrats on a full-fledged budget which he wants to include the $5.7 billion he's been demanding from Congress for the construction of a wall along the US' southern border.

In his speech before Congress Trump addressed range of issues on domestic as well as foreign US policy. The US President spoke of US border security, international trade issues, Washington's policy in the Middle east, including US withdrawal from Syria, Trump's decision to pullout from the INF nuclear arms treaty and many more.
