Congress returns from a two week break facing a looming deadline to keep the government operating while President Donald Trump presses harder for some legislative accomplishments as his first 100 days in office winds to a close.

The week is shaping up to be a collision of needs between the two and time is quickly running out on both.

Passing funding to avoid a government shutdown appeared to be an easy task just weeks ago but new stumbling blocks have arisen in recent days as Trump has added new demands into the mix on items like the border wall and increased military spending.

Government funding ends on Friday, April 28, allowing only three full days of legislative activity after the House returns late Tuesday night and the last-minute controversial requests from the administration are threatening to make a deal harder to reach.
