WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump is expected to back a short-term government funding bill, CBS and NBC reported on Friday, each citing a senior administration official.

Debate over U.S. border security will continue, but such a stop-gap funding bill would allow federal workers to be paid and “take stress off (the) system,” an official told CBS News.
