Congress approved a two-week funding bill on Thursday to avert a partial government shutdown, and President Donald Trump is expected sign the measure on Friday. The bill keeps the federal government funded through Dec. 21. Funding would have expired Friday for a portion of the government, including the Department of Homeland Security. The stopgap funding bill sets up a possible showdown right before Christmas over funding for a border wall.
