“House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Tuesday night responded to President Trump’s call for an increase in stimulus funds following Congress’s passage of the COVID-19 relief package this week, saying she’s ready to push for the $2,000 checks the president requested.
“‘Republicans repeatedly refused to say what amount the President wanted for direct checks,’ Pelosi tweeted, placing the blame on GOP lawmakers. ‘At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it!’…”
Editor’s note: The increase Trump pushed for today is the same increase he has opposed for months.
