GOP presses Trump to make a deal on spending

Congressional leaders face an uphill battle in selling President Trump on a two-year spending deal when they meet with his top advisers at a meeting scheduled in the Capitol on Tuesday.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) hope to break the budget stalemate when they meet in Pelosi’s office at 10:30 a.m.

McConnell and McCarthy are eager to strike a deal to avoid the prospect of another government shutdown, even if it means giving Democrats an increase in domestic nondefense spending, which most Republicans would otherwise oppose.

“It’s better politically, but it’s bad for the responsibilities we have of fiscal conservativism,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (Iowa), the Senate’s most senior Republican, said of a two-year spending caps deal, which Pelosi, Schumer, McConnell and McCarthy hope to iron out.
