A Trump campaign fundraising email Monday included jabs at Democrats over the government shutdown, claiming they "CAVED" under pressure from voters.

The White House also released a statement from the President, saying he's "pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses."

The email:

Statement from the President:

I am pleased that Democrats in Congress have come to their senses and are now willing to fund our great military, border patrol, first responders, and insurance for vulnerable children. As I have always said, once the Government is funded, my Administration will work toward solving the problem of very unfair illegal immigration. We will make a long-term deal on immigration if, and only if, it is good for our country.
