The Democrats are trying to load up the stimulus being proposed for more coronavirus relief. This is causing a hold up in the passage of the stimulus bill because Republicans want a clean bill.
Democrats are trying to add bailouts for “poorly run” Democrat cities, and President Trump isn’t going for it. He just tweeted to say that the focus for Dems Pelosi and Schumer is only on the bailouts:
“Pelosi and Schumer only interested in Bailout Money for poorly run Democrat cities and states. Nothing to do with China Virus! Want one trillion dollars. No interest. We are going a different way!”
Here’s what President Trump had to say: “I want money for the people.”

The talks collapsed today and it is being reported that President Trump will take executive action to get the stimulus without all of the extra pork the Democrats want. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin called the proposal by Democrats a “non-starter” because of all of the extras like money for mail-in voting to the USPS and money for “poorly run” cities and states.
