Mnuchin: Congress must tie Harvey aid to raising debt limit

Treasury watchdog reviewing Mnuchin's solar eclipse trip

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the administration wants Congress to attach the aid funds to a bill that would increase the federal debt limit without any spending cuts. The country claimed that it has developed an advanced hydrogen bomb that can fit atop an intercontinental ballistic missile.

The U.S. Treasury Secretary has called for an additional round of sanctions on North Korea following their nuclear test on Sunday.

"I did speak with the president, and it's clear that this behavior is completely unacceptable", Mnuchin said.

"We will work with our allies".

China has served as an economic lifeline for North Korea through decades of worldwide sanctions, letting fuel and coal to cross their shared border, providing huge amounts of food aid and allowing its companies to trade with the isolated state.

Pyongyang's latest act of aggression occurred after an August filled with escalating tensions and increasingly heated rhetoric from both sides.

Mnuchin said both he and President Trump support the plan.

"The president has made it clear, this isn't the time for just talk". Their words and actions continue to be very hostile and unsafe to the United States.

So far, there is little evidence of a path to success.

The U.S. has taken recent steps to pressure those who work with North Korea.

They'll also have to contend with sometimes contrarian messaging from the White House. "There's much more we can do economically".

Trump reaffirmed Mnuchin's position, tweeting Sunday afternoon, "The United States is considering, in addition to other options, stopping all trade with any country doing business with North Korea".

"I think everyone wants a clean supplemental", Bossert told reporters.

"That's one way to do it", Blunt said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

"We ought to be aiming for a cessation of these programs in the first instance, and then hope that will lead to a negotiation where we can roll back these programs", Schiff said.

"We are going to strongly consider everything at this point".

"China has a lot of trade with them", Mnuchin said. But with Harvey, it's moved the situation up earlier, and without raising the debt limit, I'm not comfortable that we will get the money that we need this month to Texas to rebuild.
