It’s 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.

You didn’t make the bet with me.

Do you really think Harry Reid cares about the Constitution? Our president and his entire cabinet certainly don’t.
