Trump Blasts Congressional ‘Grandstander’

Via The Washington Examiner:

Any member of Congress thinking about delaying the coronavirus economic relief plan is a grandstander, according to President Trump.

The U.S. Senate unanimously passed a $2 trillion relief package to reignite the economy as many industries suffer losses amid the quarantines taking place throughout the nation. The bill is expected to pass in the House with a voice vote on Friday, but some members of Congress have said they are considering blocking the vote and forcing members to return for a roll-call vote, including Republican Rep. Thomas Massie and Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

During a press conference on Thursday, Trump slammed those looking to delay the bill as grandstanders.

“Hopefully, it will get approved equally easily in the House. I think it will go through pretty well, from what I hear. Virtually everybody. There could be one vote. One vote. There could be one grandstander maybe,” Trump said. “You might have one grandstander. And for that, we will have to come back and take a little more time. But it will pass. It’ll just take a little longer. But let’s see whether or not we have a grandstander.”
