"The Democrats now say they'll only support a three month increase in the debt ceiling".

"I mean he undermined the ability to get a much better deal all around and I don't even think he realized that he did it", the GOP lawmaker told CNN. Now that Dems have a new debt-ceiling fight coming, Schumer could hold out for a DREAM bill as part of it - and Trump, who's sympathetic to DREAMers, could agree to sign it while pretending that his hand was forced. His administration has made it clear it wanted quick action on the debt ceiling, which is expected to be reached later this month.

Trump interjected and sided with the Democrats, eventually sealing the deal with a three-month suspension of the limit, a three-month funding bill, and a package for Hurricane Harvey relief.

A source briefed on the meeting said all Republican leaders, as well as treasury secretary Steve Mnuchin, objected to a short-term debt limit hike.

However, the party's appeal to its traditional base of working-class, rural and minority voters virtually disappeared last November when Donald J. Trump, a rich but politically-inexperienced Republican, won the presidency in a huge upset.

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis signs orders to send more troops to Afghanistan
White said Mattis made the decision to reexamine the Pentagon's accounting practices of USA troops himself. LIkewise in Syria , there is likely close to 1,000 US troops, and not the 503 officially acknowledged.

Both aides requested anonymity to speak freely on the private discussion.

The plan would extend the US debt limit and provide funds to keep the government running through December 15, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY and House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi of California said in a joint statement. "I can not believe the Republicans are extending the debt ceiling-I am a Republican & I am embarrassed!", he tweeted. Hard-right conservatives have long opposed raising the debt limit unless accompanied by spending cuts. Heidi Heitkamp in an effort to garner bipartisan support for tax legislation that Republican leaders on Capitol Hill are crafting on a purely partisan basis.

Backlash also came from outside conservative groups who had fought against increasing the debt ceiling without also cutting spending. "It is absolutely absurd". On Tuesday, the Trump administration announced that it would discontinue the 2012 program established by Barack Obama to allow some 800,000 "Dreamers" to live in the USA and receive work permits if they met various conditions, such as avoiding criminal activity. "Maybe it short-circuits what we have to do in September, but it complicates what we have to do in December".

"We discussed that also today, and Chuck and Nancy would like to see something happen, and so do I", Trump said. If not, the government would be unable to borrow more money or pay its bills, including its debt payments. Democrats, however, would need to win over Republican votes to add the Dream Act to legislation. Economists have said the effects of a debt limit breach would be catastrophic, with some suggesting a collapse worse than the financial crisis of 2007-08.

The move also buys nearly three months, until December 15, for Washington to try to solve myriad other issues, including more funding for the military, immigration and health care, and a longer-term increase in the government's borrowing authority to avoid a first-ever default.
