The president has announced that he supports a continuing resolution temporarily reopening the US federal government (which is currently partially shut down). Since the opposing party has already supported a temporary reopening, this seems promising. The problem is that it's Friday afternoon and the actual CR doesn't seem to exist in either the House or the Senate yet, and the president can't actually introduce legislation himself... (I don't think the House was even in session today, per the calendar.)
What does the timeline look like, assuming that whichever chamber passes it first passes a "clean" bill? Is either chamber likely to meet this weekend to try and pass something? If all parties do agree on the CR, what is the soonest that it goes into effect? When would federal employees need to return to work?
