WASHINGTON — Congressional leaders clashed on Monday over a stopgap spending bill to stave off a government shutdown at the end of the month, as Democrats put forth a measure that omitted billions of dollars in additional relief that President Trump had promised for farmers battered by his trade policies and the coronavirus pandemic.

The dispute, which came as Republicans and Democrats had been nearing a bipartisan deal on the measure, could jeopardize efforts to cement an agreement to avert a lapse in government funding when the fiscal year ends on Sept. 30. Lawmakers have less than a week of scheduled work days remaining to reach a deal before they are slated to depart Washington for the final phase of their re-election campaigns.
