(12-22-20) President Donald Trump on Tuesday said he is asking for changes to the coronavirus bill passed by Congress this week.

President Trump said in a video released on Twitter –

“I’m asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2000 or $4000 per couple,” I’m also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items in this legislation or to send me a suitable bill.”

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tweeted:

The current legislation would include direct payments of up to $600 per adult, enhanced jobless benefits of $300 per week, roughly $284 billion in Paycheck Protection Program loans, $25 billion in rental assistance, an extension of the eviction moratorium and $82 billion for schools and colleges.
