TONIGHT: Martha Interviews Paul Ryan on Trump's Debt Deal With Dems
Martha MacCallum has a big show, tonight at 7:00pm ET, headlined by House Speaker Paul Ryan's (R-Wis.) reaction to President Trump's surprise debt ceiling deal with Democrats.
In an exclusive interview at his Capitol Hill office, Speaker Ryan will also discuss Hurricane Harvey relief funds, the fight over DACA and border security.
A source told Fox News that the Republican leadership was blindsided Wednesday morning when Trump agreed to a proposal by Democrat leaders Sen. Chuck Schumer and Rep. Nancy Pelosi on a three-month deal to fund the government, raise the debt ceiling through mid-December and approve the hurricane relief funding.
Fox News is told the meeting had reached a point where the two sides were moving toward an “agree to disagree” position, when Trump jumped in and agreed to the short-term deal.
The source said it appeared Trump grew weary of the back-and-forth and decided to strike an agreement to end it.
Watch the interview and hear from Kellyanne Conway, tonight on "The Story" at 7:00pm ET.
