Trump bridges his own party

Thursday, September 7th, 2017 | World News

US President Donald Trump has averted an imminent government standstill in September. "We have an extension that will last until December 15," said Trump after a meeting with parliamentarians from both parties in Washington.

The President praised the parliamentary leadership of the Democrats in an unusual step. "We had a very good meeting with Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer," said Trump. Pelosi and Schumer are the democratic factional groups in the House of Representatives and the Senate. Schumer spoke of a "very productive meeting" and a "truly positive step forward".

Trump went on a course of confrontation with parts of his own party, causing trouble. The Republican President of the House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, had just described the idea of ​​a three-month lengthening of the debt ceiling as "ridiculous". Mitch McConell, the Republican factional candidate in the Senate, said a little later that he would bring the President's proposal into the Senate.

If the debt ceiling is reached, the US is threatening a standstill. Thus, in 1995 and 1996, numerous authorities had to stop their work because the Republicans and Democrats were initially unable to agree on an increase in the debt ceiling.
