San Francisco – Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi issued the following statement after President Trump issued two tweets on the debt ceiling this morning:

"With the White House, House and Senate under one party control, the American people expect and deserve a plan from Republicans to avert a catastrophic default and ensure the full faith and credit of the United States. With so much at risk for hard-working families, Republicans need to stop the chaos and sort themselves out in a hurry.”
