Trump sides with Democrats on extending debt limit for relief bill

U.S. President Donald Trump sided with Democrats on adding a three-month extension of the U.S. debt limit and government spending to a hurricane-relief bill.
     
Trump confirmed the agreement an hour after meeting with congressional leaders Wednesday at the White House.
     
Just hours earlier, House Speaker Paul Ryan - who was in the meeting with Trump - had told reporters the Democratic proposal was "unworkable" and "ridiculous."
