Trump: Republican threats over U.S. debt limit 'worth the fight'

(Reuters) – Presidential candidate Donald Trump on Wednesday said he thought it was “worth the fight” for congressional Republicans to threaten not to raise the U.S. debt limit as a way to pressure the Obama administration to agree to spending cuts. “I would say that it’s worth the fight,” Trump said on Bloomberg TV. “Honestly there is so much fat in Washington that if you had the right people in there you could cut it.” The Treasury Department has said the federal government can stay under its borrowing limit until at least the end of October.
