He was referring to January 19, when funds for operating federal agencies expires. The deal also would include restrictions on a program allowing immigrants to bring some relatives to the U.S.

Former Swedish Prime Minister Carl Bildt had earlier tweeted that, judging by Solberg's visit, "keys to success with Trump are personal charm, a solid trade deficit with the US and buying tons of US military hardware".
