Senate passes deal Trump made with Democrats for hurricane relief, debt ceiling, government funding

The Senate passed a package combining hurricane relief, a three-month debt ceiling extension and three months of government funding Thursday, 80-17. This is the deal popular vote loser Donald Trump negotiated with Democratic leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer the day before, a deal that enraged Republicans, but which they acquiesced to. The bill doubles the funding in the stand alone hurricane relief bill the House passed Wednesday, and includes $22 billion for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's disaster relief fund.
