Trump Today: Trump meets with Senate Republicans as Washington considers next coronavirus aid package

Following the meeting with Trump, McConnell said he believes “we need to assess what we’ve already done, take a look at what worked and what didn’t, and we’ll discuss the way forward in the next couple of weeks.”

Last week, the Democratic-run House of Representatives approved its $3 trillion coronavirus relief bill. Analysts are saying it is likely that Trump will end up signing a new aid package into law next month or later, following extensive negotiations.

The Democrats’ bill calls for almost $1 trillion in additional aid for state and local governments, a second round of direct payments to American households and $200 billion for “hazard pay” for essential workers, among other items.

McConnell has consistently emphasized moving slower on the next round of aid. Congress has authorized $3.6 trillion in aid, according to a tracker from the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a Washington-based organization.

The Trump administration has called for policies including a payroll-tax cut and limiting businesses’ liabilities in cases where a worker or customer gets the coronavirus.

Speaking at a cabinet meeting at the White House after meeting lawmakers, Trump signed an executive order he said will instruct federal agencies “to use any and all authority to waive, suspend and eliminate unnecessary regulations that impede economic recovery.”

Meeting with restaurant executives on Monday, Trump indicated he would support an extension of a deadline for spending small-business loans to 24 weeks from the current eight weeks, as states around the country were gradually opening up from lockdowns imposed amid the pandemic.
