We Can Now Expect Bi-partisan Efforts to Continue
President Donald Trump is likely to continue to reach for bi-partisan compromise on legislation, something he promised during the Y 2016 Presidential campaign and that the American people expect, the White House said Friday.
“I certainly think that the goal is to have bipartisan efforts and certainly legislation where you’ve got Republicans and Democrats both working towards it,” White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. “And I certainly would expect to continue to see that.”
President Trump reveled in his newly bi-partisan approach Thursday, declaring it “a great thing for our country,” while House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis) mostly “Grinned & Bore” it.
At the Capitol Wednesday, Speaker Ryan deemed a 3-month debt ceiling increase as “unworkable” and “ridiculous.” But, an hour later, President Trump overruled his strong objections to side with the Democrats.
The President’s rebuff on the debt came just days after President Trump ignored Speaker Ryan’s pleas not to end the DACA program to aid immigrants brought to the country as children and living here illegally.
Instead, President Trump ended DACA, and sent the matter to Congress to resolve in months.
The debt deal is in the House for passage Friday along with $15-B in disaster aid and a 3-month government funding extension.
Have a terrific weekend.
