WASHINGTON (Sputnik) — US President Donald Trump signed a bill to extend the US debt limit and offer assistance to victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
"[Trump] just signed H.R. 601 providing much needed support for storm survivors. Our thoughts and prayers are with all impacted," Sanders said in a Twitter post on Friday.
Earlier on Friday, the US House of Representatives approved the funding bill, which extends the US debt limit and prevents a government shutdown in October. The US Senate passed the measure on Thursday.
