(West Palm Beach) After Congress threatened to veto the COVID-19 victims’ aid program, Donald Trump took part in his favorite presidential campaign: golf.
The losing president had no events on his public agenda on the first day of his winter vacation. He traveled to his Palm Beach golf club, where CNN cameras appeared on the field. Journalists were not informed of his schedule. “As the holidays approach, President Trump will continue to work tirelessly for the American people. She has a lot of meetings and calls on her schedule, ”said her communication team.
Mr Trump’s departure comes as the heels of his 11thE An hour about the bill that Congress leaders have been debating for months. The president called on Americans to receive a relief check for $ 2,000, which is more than the $ 600 approved by lawmakers.
The idea was quickly rejected by Republicans in the House of Representatives.
The White House, however, assured Congress that it would sign the bill. Failure to do so will force the civil service to shut down, end unemployment benefits and withdraw retrenchment protections amid the health crisis.
Donald Trump has not diminished since losing at the hands of Joe Biden. He is examining the controversial actions trying to overturn the results. He was encouraged by his friends, such as his lawyer Rudy Giuliani, who flew to Florida in the Air Force One with the President.
The defeated president threatened to attack Republicans in Congress who did not support him as he wished.
In Florida, Mr. Trump continues to complain about election results. True, he expressed his frustration on Twitter.
“At a meeting in Florida today, everyone wondered why the Republicans were not against the Democrats who stole the tough presidential election, especially in the Senate. I helped eight senators win their election.”
“I will never forget!”, He threatened in another message.
Meanwhile, Speaker of the House of Representatives Democrat Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Munuchin tried to save the bill. At the call of the Democrats, MPs will meet Monday to vote on the $ 2,000 demanded by the president. Even if they adopt it, the proposal is unlikely to be supported by a Senate with a majority of Republicans.
They plan to vote Monday on an interim measure that will prevent the end of government operations until Joe Biden officially arrives at the White House.
The bill would provide a temporary additional allowance of $ 300 per week for those who lose their jobs due to COVID-19. It also includes grants to businesses, restaurants and theaters that have been badly damaged by the epidemic. Financial aid to schools is also awaited. The law covers the costs of health care provider and vaccine promotion.
