The problem of another increase in the US debt limit was discussed in connection with the hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which devastated the American treasury by several billion dollars.
From the report:
Representatives of the Democratic Party announced an agreement on raising the limit of public debt after approval by the House of Representatives of the allocation of almost 8 billion dollars to eliminate the consequences of hurricane Harvey. The draft law on raising the state debt limit has not yet been approved. However, his supporter was President Trump. The head of the Republicans in the US Senate, Mitch McConnell, said that the bill would be considered, although earlier many Republicans were against new increases in the US debt ceiling.
Trump again about the "deal":
Yes, we come to this deal. I think it will be good. We had a professional, emotional meeting.
To date, the level of US government debt is estimated at 19,997 trillion dollars. The burden of debt for every citizen of the United States, including old people and babies, is more than 61 thousand dollars.
