President Trump yesterday called on congressional Republicans to support a massive economic relief bill with “much higher numbers” and stimulus payments for Americans.
This was an abrupt departure from the traditional Republican position – an entirely different plan from what the Senate GOP sought to advance as recently as last week.
His Twitter post and subsequent comments at a news conference could reframe talks that have stalled for more than a month, and put new pressure on leaders in both parties.
Speaking at the White House last night, President Trump expressed support — but not an explicit endorsement — for a $1.5 trillion plan unveiled Tuesday by the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus in the House. The proposal includes a new round of $1,200 stimulus checks to individual Americans, a provision omitted from an approximately $300 billion plan Senate Republicans tried unsuccessfully to pass last week.
