Jordan’s comments come after Trump last week struck a deal with Democrats to fund the government for three months, raise the debt ceiling and provide aid to regions hit by Hurricane Harvey. The agreement, after minimal negotiation, surprised many Republicans.

“I don’t think it’s good for the American taxpayer. I don’t think it’s good for the American people,” he said.
