Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, and the left-leaning media have been blaming Trump and Republicans for the gridlock over the relief package. Millions of Americans need relief in the form of unemployment and checks. But Republicans refuse to cave to Democrats and their expensive demands.
So now President Trump is laying out what he thinks is going on:
And he’s letting everyone know that he is ready to help in 3 different tweets, in 3 different ways:
I have directed @stevenmnuchin1 to get ready to send direct payments ($3,400 for family of four) to all Americans. DEMOCRATS ARE HOLDING THIS UP!
I am ready to send more money to States and Local governments to save jobs for Police, Fire Fighters, First Responders, and Teachers. DEMOCRATS ARE HOLDING THIS UP!
I am ready to have @USTreasury and @SBA send additional PPP payments to small businesses that have been hurt by the ChinaVirus. DEMOCRATS ARE HOLDING THIS UP!
President Trump took to Twitter to explain that he has directed his administration to send out relief and support to the country. That includes checks to families, funds for first responders and teachers, and more cash for the PPP.
Why isn’t the money on its way? President Trump says the Democrats are holding up the progress. Republicans in Congress are willing to pass legislation that provides relief for American families, small businesses, and those who keep us safe. Democrats appear unwilling to negotiate because they want trillions to bail out in-debt blue states.
These Democrat-run states have been losing money for years, long before the pandemic. On top of that, these are the same states overrun with rioting, with local leaders cutting funds for police. Why should Americans fit the bill for Democrats who can’t even run their states properly? While so many Americans struggle to recover from lockdowns these same Democrats forced?
It seems like if Democrats want to help Americans, they would be willing to negotiate with Trump and Republicans. Instead, they demand reparations, tax increases, and bailouts for rich Democrats. Yet they continue to accuse Trump of not putting Americans first.
Should Trump give in to Democrat demands, or keep pushing for affordable help for Americans?
- An additional COVID relief bill has been held up by Congress, thanks to gridlock.
- President Trump called out Democrats for refusing to negotiate and make a deal.
- Democrats want to spend trillions to bail out blue states.
