3:53 pm
might being affected by the pollution the soil might be affected by the pollution and well. in need and in addition we have hundreds of people who at that time might have been killed by the accident we haven't learned that really the last of us from marianna and even right now we're discussing suffering weakening the environmental legislation that are necessary to make things work out and if this is an eclectic accidents like this could happen more frequently in the future and for to be in spite of them they're of the measures emergency measures taken by the government think this is just an acceptable. now just days after declaring he wouldn't cave in donald trump has agreed to end the partial government shutdown without getting the money he wants to build the mexico border will a deal with rival democratic party politicians will provide enough funding to operate the government for three weeks alan fischer reports now from washington on

what could happen after that thank you very much my fellow american it's over for no i am very proud to announce today that we have reached a deal to end the shutdown and reopen the federal government. after the longest shutdown in american history thirty five days steps are no being taken to get it hundred thousand federal stuff back to work but the funding deal is just for three weeks in that time republicans and democrats will discuss a long term plan here's the problem the president still wants is border wall the democrats don't want to agree to that from the white house a warning that if he doesn't get what he wants i will use the powers afforded to me under the laws and the constitution of the united states to address this emergency pressure had been building on the president to end the stalemate his approval rating was dropping senior republicans were leaking support and workers were warning of genuine security risks in the senate republican leader
3:55 pm
called on democrats to negotiate a longer funding deal that would include a significant investment in urgently needed border security measures including physical barriers in his rose garden address the president insisted democrats know back the idea of a border wall that was disputed by their leader we don't agree on some of the specifics of border security democrats are against the wall but we agree on many things. such is the need for new technology and the need to strengthen security in our ports of entry a funding bill was agreed by the senate in december but attacked by right wing commentators donald trump blocked it because it had no money for a border wall his decision to reopen the government has led to new attacks from his own supporters but one former trumpet ministration official says he no gets to make a state of the union address to prove his case saving as we all know is a prime time address not just to congress to brief congress but also to brief the
3:56 pm
american people and i think i expect that the president will use that time to try to address the american people and discuss the significant issue that he has before them in the sport of offering donald trump said he was willing to keep the government shutdown for months to get the money for a wall he promised on the campaign trail mexico would pay for thousands of federal workers will no go back to work after the president misjudge the situation the consequences and the result thank you very much allan fisher al-jazeera washington . the u.n. security council is set to meet later on saturday to discuss the power struggle gripping venezuela the united states is likely to push the council to back the opposition leader. who's declared himself as president but any such move will be brought by russia which backs nicolas maduro inside venezuela the two men continue to rally support as latin america in human reports now from kolkata on the colombian venezuelan border sam lives in caracas and almost surreal scene two
