"I think its ridiculous and disgraceful that they want to play politics with the debt ceiling at this moment when we have fellow citizens in need", Ryan said just a few hours before Trump agreed to the deal.
An aide briefed on the meeting said Republican leaders wanted an 18-month debt limit hike and then floated 6 months, which Democrats rejected. They said, however, that they would only support a debt-ceiling increase that amounted to a three-month extension. If not, the government would be unable to borrow more money or pay its bills, including its debt payments.
Republican leaders had planned to tie a longer-term debt limit increase to funding for Hurricane Harvey victims, in a bid to bring more of their members on board.
Trump's daughter, Ivanka Trump, entered the Oval Office toward the end of the meeting to say hello, the source added.
Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse was one of them, saying in a tweet that "The Pelosi-Schumer-Trump deal is bad".
The proposal attaches the disaster aid to a government funding bill that would raise the U.S. debt limit and keep the government running through 15 December, setting up a fiscal showdown at the end of the year that Republicans had hoped to avoid.
"The need for certainty now is incredibly important", Mr. McConnell said on the Senate floor Wednesday, noting that he was in discussions with Democrats. The bill did not yet include the debt limit or government funding.
Later, Schumer told reporters, "We thought for the good of the country we should make the right offer and we did, and we're very glad the president accepted it". But if the group decides to vote against the bill, it could exacerbate tensions among House Republicans and raise the specter that the bill could pass without a majority of the majority party - violating an informal rule that House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) had pledged to adhere to when he became speaker in 2015.
Conservatives were already balking over a plan to attach a debt ceiling increase to the Harvey recovery bill that cleared the House on Wednesday.
The agreement comes as Congress, which reconvened this week following the August recess, faces a series of pressing fiscal deadlines.
Republican Mark Meadows of North Carolina, chairman of the conservative House Freedom Caucus, said Trump "wasn't left with a lot of good options".
Since their votes are needed to pass debt ceiling increases, Democrats potentially could use the next vote debt limit vote at the end of this year as leverage to win concessions on a tax reform package that Trump badly wants to advance.
