Trump Halts COVID-19 Relief Bill Talks Until After Election


President Trump on Tuesday instructed his administration to stop negotiating with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) on future coronavirus stimulus relief package until after the November election.

In a series of four tweets, Trump called out Pelosi for not “negotiating in good faith” by wanting a $2.4 Trillion stimulus package that focuses on funding issues that are not COVID related such as “bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States.”

“Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bail out poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith,” Trump said in one tweet.
