‘Bluffed their way into total victory’: GOP ‘furious’ as Trump caves to Dem debt ceiling demands

Published

on

In their negotiations for government funding, Congressional Democrats wanted to pass a three-month debt ceiling increase that would keep the government funded through mid-December.

Congressional Republicans opposed such a measure, as they feared it would give Democrats more leverage to reauthorize Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) protections for undocumented immigrants who were brought to the United States as children.

However, as the Washington Post reports, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) convinced Trump to go along with them on their three-month debt limit plan — and Republicans in Congress are not happy about it.

One Republican aide told Axios reporter Jonathan Swan that the Democrats “bluffed their way into total victory” over the GOP, and bemoaned that “DACA will be reauthorized without strings.” Additionally, the aide wrote that Schumer has now “inserted himself into all the negotiations in the winter, including tax, spending, and immigration.”

Politico’s Jake Sherman, meanwhile, said that Republicans are “furious” with Trump, whom they said agreed to the Democratic plan within mere hours of negotiations.

Sherman also added that “Democrats feel like they just completely rolled him.”
