US: The White House eyed the debt limit matter, urging "let's stay open for
business," and noted Thursday night, "Congress passed a short-term (2-week debt
limit) funding measure that keeps the federal government open while lawmakers
continue to work on a long-term budget deal." It said Pres. Trump "lent his
support to that effort" Thursday, "hosting both Democratic and Republican
congressional leaders in the Oval Office. Although Congress is ultimately
responsible for reaching a compromise that keeps the government open into next
year, the White House understands its important leadership role in outlining
what a lasting solution must achieve."
- The White House said Thursday meeting was "an encouraging sign that leaders on
both sides of the aisle agree," with Trump noting, 'We're all here as a very
friendly, well-unified group. We hope that we're going to make some great
progress for our country."
