WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on Tuesday advised reporters he’s now consulting with the White House about the kind of spending laws that President Donald Trump could be keen to signal into regulation, after Democrats rejected his proposed price range bill.
McConnell spoke to the press shortly after Chuck Schumer, the highest Democrat within the Senate, stated he had rejected Republicans’ proposal.
