House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) will have dinner with President Donald Trump at the White House on Wednesday night.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) is looking to prove to Democrats and liberal activists that she can win through a deal she struck with Donald Trump on spending and the debt limit, refusing to apologize for the agreement despite facing left-wing backlash for working with the president.
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey and with Hurricane Irma looming off the coast of Florida, Congress has passed a $15.25 billion hurricane aid package coupled with a controversial three-month debt ceiling increase.
President Trump will support a short-term debt-ceiling extension and funding the federal government for the next three months, CNBC reported.
Senate Republicans have suggested they will increase the debt ceiling by adding it to an aid bill for Hurricane Harvey relief, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Democratic congressional leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) and Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) announced Wednesday they will support an aid package for Hurricane Harvey that is tied to raising the debt ceiling until December.
