Trump Declares ‘No Coronavirus Stimulus’ Until After 2020 Election

But is this all just ‘the art of the deal’ at work?

President Trump certainly isn’t the sort of negotiator who shies away from playing hardball, and his latest maneuver in the ongoing debate over coronavirus stimulus plans is the proof.

For months, Republicans and Democrats in Congress have been unable to come to terms on a deal that would help Americans through the economic hardship brought about by the global coronavirus pandemic.  The first round of stimulus has already expired, and included billions of dollars for small businesses, direct payments to American citizens, and enhanced unemployment benefits.

Now, as citizens around the country struggle with rent, groceries, and other bills, Congress has remained stagnant.

The President has not been pleased with the lack of progress, and is now taking drastic action.

President Donald Trump on Tuesday ended negotiations with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi for a coronavirus relief bill, after weeks of failed attempts.

“Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith.”

Trump said his administration would revisit the idea of coronavirus relief after the election.

“I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” he wrote.

The Commander in Chief would later tweet that he was ready to sign a bill for standalone $1,200 payments to Americans, goading House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to act.
