On the anniversary of President Donald Trump's inauguration, Americans awoke to the first day of a government shutdown and Congress staged a weekend session to show voters it was trying to resolve the stalemate.

But if no deal is reached before Monday, hundreds of thousands of federal employees will be furloughed.
