House Speaker Paul Ryan takes questions Thursday, a day after President Donald Trump blindsided Republican leaders by striking a short-term debt ceiling and government funding deal with Democrats.

On Wednesday, Trump, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi agreed to package aid funding for Hurricane Harvey recovery with a three-month debt ceiling increase and government funding measure. Trump made the decision over the objections of GOP congressional leaders and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.

Earlier Wednesday, Ryan had called extending the debt limit by only three months a "ridiculous" proposal.
