The Senate, which must pass a deal, has now adjourned until Thursday.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump will stay on in Washington for the festive period, cancelling holidays in Florida.

The shutdown began at midnight on Friday after Democrats resisted Mr Trump's demands for $5bn (£4bn) for his Mexico border wall.

Mr Trump warned there could be "a long stay" in the talks and Democrats told him: "You must abandon the wall."

Vice-President Mike Pence stressed that negotiators were still talking.
