TRUMP Goes Around Do-Nothing Republican Leaders and Strikes Debt Limit Deal with Pelosi-Schumer

President Trump went around the Do-Nothing Republicans and struck a debt limit deal with Democrat leaders Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi.

The President agreed to move the debt limit discussions to December and fund the government for three months.

Trump met with Congressional leaders Wednesday morning in the White House.

President Trump shocked Republican leaders with the announcement.
Republicans in Congress have been unable to keep campaign promises and pass legislation this year to help working Americans.

Politico reported:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday defied Republican leaders and agreed to Democrats’ demands to raise the debt limit and fund the government for three months, setting up a brutal year-end fiscal cliff.

During a meeting with congressional leaders at the White House, Trump surprised his GOP colleagues when he granted Democrats’ request that Republicans pass a Hurricane Harvey relief package with a three-month debt increase. Top White House officials and GOP leaders had spent the past few days urging Republicans to raise the debt ceiling through the 2018 midterm election.
