(KDRTV)-US President Donald Trump has approved into law a coronavirus relief and spending package bill after previously declining the bill

The approach by the President to sign into law the bill by midnight on Monday salvaged the partial government shutdown
It is not yet established why President Donald Trump who is in Florida finally resolved to sign the bill.
However, he said he was signing the bill with “a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed”.
