Watch Live: President Trump To Make Shutdown Deal Announcement

<p><strong>Update (12:55 pm ET): </strong>As White House aides scramble to set up the Rose Garden, President Trump is expected to announce his support for a bill to temporarily reopen the government.</p>

<p>Much to the president's chagrin, stocks appear to be moving lower on news that the shutdown might be coming to an end. Of course, the end of the shutdown means a smaller hit to Q1 GDP, which means less chance of the Fed pausing QT.</p>

<p>At long last, the government shutdown, now in its 35th day, may finally be coming to an end.</p>

<p>According to the Drudge Report, President Trump is planning to announce that a deal has been reached to temporarily reopen the federal government during a hastily organized 1 pm press conference set to take place in the Rose Garden. The press conference was announced mere minutes before Drudge broke the news about the announcement, and follows a hint from Sen. Tim Kaine from earlier on Friday that a breakthrough might finally be imminent.</p>

<p><a href="">CBS</a> and the Atlantic have confirmed that Trump is expected to endorse a short-term bill to reopen the government.</p>

<p>Reporters say the Rose Garden is being set up for a "full blown presidential announcement...complete with teleprompter."</p>

<script async="" src="" charset="utf-8"></script><p>Reports on Twitter stressed that the government would reopen "temporarily". The agreement comes after <a href="">the FAA temporarily suspended</a> flights taking off for La Guardia Airport in NYC  and 800,000 government workers missed their second paycheck.</p>

<script async="" src="" charset="utf-8"></script><p>USDJPY is rallying on the news now that several sources have confirmed, though the exact length of the measure isn't yet clear, though CBS said the temporary measure would open the government for "a few weeks." We have yet to see much of a reaction in stocks.</p>
