Biden Reaches Tentative Deal on U.S. Debt Ceiling, Sources Say

President Joe Biden and Republican Kevin McCarthy have reportedly agreed in principle to raise the US federal government’s $31.4 trillion debt ceiling, amid concerns of a potential default in early June. According to Reuters, which cited “two sources familiar with the negotiations,” the “tentative” deal was reached after a 90-minute phone call on May 27. The sources stated that “The White House and negotiators for House Republicans have reached an agreement in principle to avert a debt default.” However, a source noted that there are still a few components of the deal to be finalized before moving forward. The deal is said to prevent an “economically destabilizing default,” but it must be passed through Congress before June 5. Failure to do so would result in the Treasury running short of money. It is important to note that the exact details of the deal have not been made available yet. This is a developing story, and further information will be added as it becomes available.
