Trump Flip Flops On Stimulus Payments Before Election

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

President Trump called on Congress in a series of tweets to pass additional coronavirus relief measures, reversing course from hours earlier when he announced he was calling off negotiations until after the November election.

“The House & Senate should IMMEDIATELY Approve 25 Billion Dollars for Airline Payroll Support, & 135 Billion Dollars for Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business. Both of these will be fully paid for with unused funds from the Cares Act. Have this money. I will sign now!” Trump wrote.

“If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?” he tweeted less than 30 minutes later.

Trump reiterated his openness to sending a fresh round of $1,200 checks on Wednesday morning, calling on House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to “move fast.”

“Move Fast, I Am Waiting To Sign!” he tweeted.
