President Trump signed the long-awaited second $ 900 billion coronavirus pandemic relief bill on Sunday night, sending aid to millions of Americans and narrowly avoiding a government shutdown.
Trump had threatened not to sign the bill if he didn’t increase stimulus checks from $ 600 to $ 2,000, as well as to repeal U.S. law that grants legal immunity to social media companies.
Its delay in approval means unemployed workers will miss a week of $ 300 benefits.
“I told Congress that I wanted a lot less unnecessary spending and more money for the American people in the form of checks of $ 2,000 per adult and $ 600 per child,” Trump said in a statement on Twitter through a spokesperson. Judd Deere.
