« Unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do, they must approve the $2000 payments ASAP« , President Trump.

Mardi 29 décembre 2020 ((radioplushaiti.com))–Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell objected on Tuesday to a proposal by Vermont Senator Bernie Sanders to vote on a House bill increasing COVID-19 relief payments to $2,000. McConnell added that the Senate will “begin the process” of addressing President Trump’s request that Congress increase relief payments to $2,000.

Trump reacted to Mitch McConnell blocking Democrats’ request for a vote on $2,000 stimulus payments, tweeting: « Unless Republicans have a death wish, and it is also the right thing to do, they must approve the $2000 payments ASAP. »

The House voted 275-134 on Monday to increase the stimulus payments set to go out to American households in the coming weeks.
