President Trump pressed Congress this week to increase direct payments to working-class Americans in the recently passed CoVID stimulus package; saying $2000 payments are needed to ease the financial burden of millions of citizens.

President Trump signed a massive $900 billion Coronavirus stimulus package over the weekend: allocating new funds for unemployment insurance, food assistance, and direct payment to working-class Americans.

“I will sign the Omnibus and Covid package with a strong message that makes clear to Congress that wasteful items need to be removed,” Trump said in the statement.

“The compromise bill is not perfect, but it will do an enormous amount of good for struggling Kentuckians and Americans across the country who need help now,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky. “I thank the President for signing this relief into law.”
