Escalating Feud, Trump Blames McConnell And Ryan For Upcoming \'mess\' On Debt Ceiling

President Donald Trump on Thursday sought to pin blame on his party's congressional leaders for what the president predicts will be "a mess" to raise the federal governments debt limit.

In a pair of morning tweets, Trump said he asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., and House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to include a debt ceiling increase in a recent veterans bill.

Trump tweeted: "I requested that Mitch M & Paul R tie the Debt Ceiling legislation into the popular V.A. Bill (which just passed) for easy approval. They ... didn't do it so now we have a big deal with Dems holding them up (as usual) on Debt Ceiling approval. Could have been so easy - now a mess!"

The Trump administration has warned that Congress must raise the debt limit before the end of September to avert a fiscal crisis. Next month could produce legislative brinkmanship because the debt impasse coincides with the deadline to pass a new government spending bill.
