Trump says partial U.S. govt shutdown to last until agreement on border wall

WASHINGTON, Dec 25 (Reuters) - President Donald Trump on Tuesday said the partial shutdown of the federal government was going to last until his demand for funds to build a U.S.-Mexico border wall is met.

Speaking after a video conference with U.S. troops posted abroad, Trump also reiterated his contention that the Federal Reserve was raising U.S. interest rates too fast.
