Pelosi already nulled $1.8 trillion agreement
Nancy Pelosi had already nulled a 1.8 trillion dollars agreement by the White House, arguing that the deal didn’t go as far as the 2.2 trillion dollars relief bill allowed in the White House last month.
On Tuesday, McConnell described that the Senate would vote on a targeted COVID-19 relaxation bill upcoming week, which includes another tour of funding for the small business rescue package, investments in schools, boosted unemployment benefits, and liability protections for businesses.
President Donald Trump, on Thursday, repeated to Fox News’ Stuart Varney he is eager to increase his offer for the relaxation package over the current 1.8 trillion dollars proposal of the White House.
He added that he would absolutely, he would. He would say more, and he would go higher. Go big or go home; he said it yesterday. Furthermore, President Trump argued that Pelosi does not want to offer anything.
President Trump added that Pelosi thinks it helps her with the election, but I don’t think so. President thinks it hurts her with the election because everybody knows Pelosi is holding it up. Trump continued that they are not holding it up, but she is.
The recent update given by the John Hopkins University the deal on testing and update on stimulus conversations arrives amid higher than 7.9 million Coronavirus cases in the U.S. and above 217,000 died.
