President Trump’s Administration Continues Stimulus Talks

Treasury Secretary Mnuchin says he is willing to negotiate his offer.

The president’s administration announced Wednesday that it would be willing to increase the total cost of a new stimulus bill that would address the economic fallout of the COVID-19 pandemic. Treasury Secretary Mnuchin stated that he was willing to increase the White House’s offer of $1.8 trillion if it meant getting aid to Americans prior to the election. 

President Trump also indicated that he would be willing to sign a bill with a higher sticker price. He said, “Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want to give anything. She thinks it helps her with the election, and I don’t think so. I think it hurts her with the election because everyone knows she’s holding it up. We’re not holding it up. She’s holding it up.” The House has passed a $2.2 trillion bill that has yet to be taken up by the Senate. 

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For the White House and Congress to pass a bill to bring relief to Americans
  • That God would give the president discernment to lead the nation out of the pandemic. 
  • For the Lord to lead Congress to work together to bring a strong bill forward.
