Trump says talked with congressional leaders about ending debt ceiling

Trump made the deal over the objections of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), who left the meeting stunned.

That legislation also included more than $15 billion for hurricane and disaster relief in response to the devastation caused by Harvey in Texas and Louisiana.

It's just the first installment of a federal aid package that could rival or exceed the $110 billion federal response after Hurricane Katrina, though future aid packages may be more hard to pass.

In the course of a relatively brief negotiating session at the White House, Trump largely sided with Democratic leaders as they pushed for the three-month deal. Right-wing outlets have praised the president for the agreement and blasted Republican leadership for their attempted obstruction.

Besides, Pelosi said, Democrats got exactly what they wanted out of their talk with Trump.

Indeed, Trump and Republicans have been at odds since the president's campaign, and he has expressed frustration with the party for not helping him deliver his campaign promises. "I know you did not mean to instill fear, but that is what is happening'".

The Washington Post, citing three people familiar with the decision, said Trump and Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer had also agreed to work toward a permanent debt-limit repeal.

The Trump campaign released an ad Thursday that blamed Schumer and Pelosi for keeping Trump from doing his job, making for a sharp contrast with Trump's current friendly relationship with the two Democrats. While the deal avoids a government shutdown at the end of the month, it sets up another fight over spending and the US national debt in December.

Hours before the Oval Office meeting, Mr Ryan called Democrat demands for the debt ceiling, linked to the hurricane relief package, "disgraceful". "We had a very, very cordial and professional meeting". Ben Sasse (R-NE), one of 17 GOP Senators who voted against the Harvey plan because of the addition of the debt limit increase and/or the stopgap budget.

President Trump said Thursday that there are "a lot of good reasons" to get rid of the debt ceiling, and he's far from being alone in thinking that.

Both measures failed by wide margins on Thursday, allowing the Senate to vote on the full package, sending it back to the House of Representatives.
