Trump, Pelosi apparently agree on debt ceiling

Well, good news.  Trump and Pelosi cooperated and made an agreement on the debt ceiling issue, to suspend it until July 31, 2021 (as if the coincidence with a Major League Baseball trading deadline matters).  NPR reports. 
Trump actually announced the deal on Twitter, and the upbeat tone is a bit surprising. Hope there are no untied strings attached to trip and fall on. 

Update: July 24

Robert Costa and Mike DeBonis of the Washington Post make an anology to the film "Thelma and Louise" and note that the Republicans, under Trump, are less ideological about the debt ceiling than they were a few years ago (with Boehner and the grand bargain of 2011).
