Trump Unveils Massive New Stimulus

Via The Washington Examiner:

President Trump pushed Congress to adopt “very big and bold” infrastructure investments in future legislation to combat the coronavirus. 

On Tuesday, the president advocated for a $2 trillion addition to congressional economic relief bills designed to help workers and businesses during the pandemic, saying he hopes to increase employment through federal programs. 

“With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill. It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4,” Trump tweeted. 

Infrastructure was a heavily emphasized issue during Trump’s campaign in 2016 and early presidency, mentioning it at every State of the Union address with the exception of 2020, but the effort has struggled to gain bipartisan traction in Congress.
