US President Barack Obama warned that Americas political dysfunction had encouraged its enemies and depressed its friends, and said the crisis had left "no winners" in Washington.

In trying to heal the wounds of the last two weeks of political drama, Obama hoped to avoid a new round of brinkmanship within months after a temporary truce between Republicans and Democrats.

The president called on warring politicians to come together to pass a long-term budget and to give up the "brinkmanship" that threatens the economy and squandered the trust of the American people.
