President Trump's acceptance of a budget plan from congressional democrats on Wednesday, should not provide any clues into the President's party loyalties. This is because, in many arguments about which political party Donald Trump favors, it's been stated that he was once a Democrat before he was a Republican. Prior to 1987, this was correct and was the same year he registered with the GOP.

Kicks GOP to curb, cutting deals with Democrats

In the first week of September that Congress returned to Washington after a one month recess, President Trump appeared to side with Democrats for the first time 1987 and since he became president.

According to one report by CNN titled: "Trump bucks GOP leadership, backs Democratic deal on debt ceiling, funding government," Trump appeared to "buck" the GOP during a meeting with congressional leaders on Wednesday.

Since Donald Trump has been in office, he has been warring with Republicans while siding with them at the same time. During his time in office, Trump has intentionally ignored Democrats as they are the minority party. But it appears that some of the battles that the President has had with members of his party might have left him with no choice but to look at Democrats for solutions.

The Liberal party's budget proposal was to pass disaster relief for Hurricane Harvey and raise the debt ceiling until December.

As opined, the Democratic Party seems to have once again shown how necessary they are to pass a congressional budget bill.

Republicans battle with Democrats over debt limit

The CNN article reported that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin all expressed concern to President Trump about the Democrat's plan for a three-month debt limit.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi pushed back against the Republican's idea to float six-months after the GOP leaders suggested an 18-month debt limit hike.

House Speaker Paul Ryan initially said that the Democrat's plans for a three-month debt ceiling was a "ridiculous" idea and "disgraceful," saying that the minority party was "playing politics" with American lives.

But the CNN report also pointed to some another unrelated reason for why GOP members became even more frustrated by the President's pivot. It was reported that Mnuchin was in the middle of arguing for a longer budget deal when Trump cut him off and agreed with the Democrat's plan.

Ivanka's role

The article reported that Trump's daughter Ivanka walked in the room towards the end of the meeting. Ivanka reportedly came in to pitch child care tax credits which was when it said that the topic of discussion was changed. Ivanka and her husband Jared Kushner have been referred to by many as representing the Democratic element of the White House, which might have something to do with it. But her presence was likely seen as a tactic to signify two things, one: that President Trump's support for any ideas from the Democrats was now unquestionable and two: that the meeting was basically over.
