President Trump Sides With Democrats on Debt Ceiling and Government Funding

On Wednesday morning, House Speaker Paul Ryan called Democrats’ plans to raise the debt ceiling and fund the government for just three months “a ridiculous idea.” Hours later, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi announced that President Trump had agreed to help them do just that.
“In the meeting, the President and Congressional leadership agreed to pass aid for Harvey, and extension of the debt limit, and a continuing resolution both to December 15, all together,” the statement read. “As Democratic leaders, we also made it clear that we strongly believe the DREAM Act must come to the floor and pass as soon as possible, and we will not rest until we get this done.”
