  • Trump blames Democrats for no second check.
  • Lawmakers in Congress cannot agree on this.
  • And now, Trump accuses Democrats via Twitter of being “ruthless.”

For months now, legislators in Congress have been unable to agree on a middle ground that allows citizens of the United States to receive the expected and longed for second stimulus check to relieve them of the economic crisis due to the coronavirus pandemic.

With negotiations stalled once again, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to criticize Democratic leaders, accusing them of being “ruthless” and calling on Republicans to find a way to deliver “much higher numbers” to the American people.

Trump tweeted: “Democrats are ‘ruthless.’ They don’t want to give STIMULUS PAYMENTS to people who desperately need the money, and whose fault it was NOT that the plague came from China. Go for much higher numbers Republicans, it all comes back to the US anyway (one way or another!) “.

Second check Trump Democrats: Blame them for never coming

That Trump blames the Democrats for everything is not so rare.

In August, the president said in an interview after another hiatus in negotiations: “It’s the fault [de los demócratas]. They want $ 3.5 billion for something that will be fraudulent; basically, it’s election money. ”

But asking Republicans to raise the figure to reach an agreement and be able to pay the second round of checks is unusual.

Especially since it seems like a show of support for Pelosi!

It is true that the president has asked on several occasions that the second check be paid to the population, but your administration has been unable to make that happen.

This is due to ongoing disagreements between the White House and Congress, as well as disagreements and bargaining failures between Democratic and Republican legislators.

The Republicans criticize the Democrats, and they return the ball to the Republican court again.

But now, Trump’s new mediation stance on behalf of the nation’s people seems to have taken its toll.

On Wednesday they appeared to applaud Trump’s tweet, encouraging Senate and House Republicans to heed his message. In a joint statement, the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy pelosi, and Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said:

We are encouraged that, after months of Senate Republicans insisting on defrauding the massive needs of the American people, President Trump is now asking Republicans to ‘go for the much higher numbers’ in the next US aid package. coronavirus. We look forward to hearing from the president’s negotiators that they will finally meet us midway through a bill that matches the massive economic and health crises that plague our nation. “

Pelosi wants to keep the House in session until a compromise is reached for the second economic stimulus package. In an interview with CNBC, Pelosi said: “I just finished the call with my colleagues. We are committed to staying here until we have an agreement, an agreement that meets the needs of the American people. “

3 keys to get a second coronavirus check

Although the outlook seems unlikely, we give you 3 clues as to why a second coronavirus check would be given.

After long and fruitless discussions between Republicans and Democrats about an upcoming economic stimulus package, it appears that the aid check will not reach families.

Republicans last week presented a new proposal in the Senate that did not include a check. This was one of the reasons it was rejected during Thursday’s session.

The negotiating parties have not found a meeting point, especially when it comes to the amount of funds that must be allocated to overcome the coronavirus crisis.

However, there is still hope. These are four keys to get a second coronavirus check:

  • Unemployment assistance: Although only a few states are beginning to send the additional $ 300 in unemployment assistance that Trump approved in August, it is clear that these funds will not last forever. It will be there when lawmakers will have to sit down again to discuss a broader aid plan. The reality is that the unemployment rate has decreased, but the figure is still high. According to the Labor Department, the first week of September, for example, 884,000 people applied for the benefit for the first time.
  • Money well spent: According to a series of surveys, the majority of people who received the federal aid check used the money to pay for essential expenses. In June, a survey by the Census Bureau indicated that about 80% of those surveyed used their payment on food, rent, and services (gas, electricity, electricity or internet). Another survey by the Bureau of Labor Statistics confirms the same, although with 59% of those surveyed, La Opinion reported. These results are encouraging for the approval of a second check.
  • Idea with Republican and Democratic support: A second direct check to families is an idea both parties have supported. Their differences are not in the fact itself of sending aid, but in establishing how much the aid would be and to whom it would benefit. According to a Gallup poll, among Americans, 82% of Democrats approve of the idea of ​​a check similar to that of the Cares Act and 64% of Republicans approve.
