Trump Puts Pelosi On Notice: “I simply want to get our great people $2000 and stop the billions of dollars in pork”

President Trump made his intentions clear and put Nancy Pelosi on notice this morning by doubling down on his demand the American people finally get taken care of by Congress. 

He said, “I simply want to get our great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill. Also, stop the billions of dollars in pork.” 

One trump supporter spoke for millions when he said: “Most of the bill is pork. The Kennedy Center, other countries, climate change, you name it. All non-China Virus related.” 

Pelosi said weakly, “The bipartisan COVID relief & omnibus bill has been enrolled. The House & Senate are now sending this important legislation #ForThePeople to the White House for the President’s signature.”

“We urge him to sign this bill into law to give immediate relief to hard-working families.”

Meanwhile, the future of a roughly $900 billion coronavirus relief package, which would provide millions of households with direct payments and enhanced federal unemployment benefits, remains in question over the president’s objections. 

Trump threatened to veto the relief on Tuesday if Congress didn’t increase the size of stimulus checks and gut provisions that he considered wasteful — a position he didn’t appear to back down from on Saturday. 

“I simply want to get out great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill. Also, stop the billions of dollars in ‘pork,’” Trump said. 

If Trump doesn’t sign the bill — which also includes $1.4 trillion in regular government spending — a partial government shutdown would be triggered on Tuesday.
