Trump agrees to democrat deal on spending and Harvey aid

US President, Donald Trump has agreed to a democratic plan to lift the debt limit for three months; fund the government and rush aid to hurricane Harvey victims.

The US President went against republican leaders who wanted to extend a debt-limit increase for longer, until after the 2018 mid-term elections.

Democrats announced the deal just before the House of Representatives passed 8 billion dollars for Harvey victims.

Meanwhile, congress will need to approve the deal before it is finalised.
