The U.S. Senate failed to adopt two bills that would restart the work of the government of the country after a month-long suspension because of disputes over the Federal budget, according to Reuters.
One of the documents was designed by the Republican party, the other Democratic. The first involved the allocation of the necessary funds for the construction of a wall on the border with Mexico, the second meant the reopening of the government without any conditions.
Both bills received the required number of votes. The leader of the democratic minority in the Senate, Chuck Schumer held personal talks with Republican majority leader Mitch McConnell, however, the senators did not come to an agreement.
The work of the U.S. government were suspended on 22 December after Republicans and Democrats in the Congress are unable to pass a Federal budget for the year 2019. The main controversy revolved around funding for the protection of the state border and the construction of a wall along the border with Mexico. President Donald trump, representing the Republican party, insisted that the additional $ 5.7 billion, the Democrats opposed.
The procedure of suspension of work of the government, also called the shutdown to last for an indefinite amount of time. It has led to the failure of the U.S. delegation to the world economic forum in Davos. Previously, trump said that the shutdown could drag on for months or even years.
