The president was scheduled to travel to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, however, he had to abandon those plans after Senate Republicans and Democrats failed to reach a deal to fund the government. 

The White House said on Friday that 1,056 employees of the Executive Office of the President would be furloughed, while 659, who are considered essential, would report to work on Monday.
