WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump shall stay in Washington through Christmas “due to the shutdown,” Saturday white House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said on.

Trump have been scheduled to go to his Florida resort along with his family for the ultimate end of year holidays, but said on Friday he’d stay static in Washington if he and lawmakers didn’t strike a budget deal to avert a partial government shutdown.

He left it unclear at that time, however, just how long he may stay in the capital.
