Trump sides with Democrats to raise debt ceiling

NEW YORK POST – Marisa Schultz

“President Trump has sided with a Democratic proposal to tie Hurricane Harvey funding with a three-month increase to the debt limit and funding the government through Dec. 15.

Trump announced the deal with “Nancy” and Chuck” after huddling with the top Democratic leaders –House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer – and top GOP leadership at the White House.

“We essentially came to a deal, and I think the deal will be very good,” Trump said aboard Air Force One Wednesday. “We had a very, very cordial and professional meeting.”

The Democrats touted getting the deal they essentially wanted that avoids a government shutdown Oct. 1 over the president’s border wall demands.”
