    Congressional Democrats and Republicans have struck a budget deal that would suspend the debt limit until mid-2021, President Donald Trump and Democratic congressional leaders announced Monday.

    The emerging two-year agreement would suspend the debt limit until July 31, 2021, and put an end to automatic spending cuts that would have kicked in without a deal. 

    President Donald Trump spoke optimistically earlier in the day about the prospects for a deal and touted that it would boost military spending.
