The president’s departure comes before a Friday night deadline that could see the federal government shut down if a spending bill isn’t passed by both the House and the Senate.
House Republicans passed a short-term spending bill on Thursday, but Senate Democrats have vowed to block the bill when it comes up for a vote on the Senate floor.
The Senate on Thursday night pushed debate on the short-term bill to Friday, meaning that lawmakers will have just 13 hours to pass a bill to fund the government past Friday night’s deadline.
