Its a majority of Senators present, so no, 34 would not be enough.
US Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 2: He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur;
With a minimum quorum of 51 Senators present, two thirds of that is 34.
Get out your checkbook, you owe FR $1,000.
