President Trump signed a stopgap measure on Friday to avert a government shutdown hours before the midnight deadline.

The House and Senate cleared the short-term spending patch on Thursday. It will extend funding for federal agencies through Jan. 19.

Trump signed the stopgap bill alongside the GOP tax overhaul as his last items of business before leaving the White House for his Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Fla.

It’s the second short-term spending bill Trump has signed into law in as many weeks as Republicans focused on finishing their tax legislation before Christmas.
