Latest update from the White House about putting cash in Americans’ hands. See when you could get yours…
President Donald Trump has just said the White House is requesting the federal government send DIRECT payments to Americans suffering economically from the coronavirus
According to Breitbart, “We’re going big,” Trump stated, “We want to go big, go solid.” The proposal was detailed by Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin today during a press briefing at the White House.
“We’re looking at sending checks to Americans immediately,” Mnuchin stated, adding, “Americans need cash now and the president wants to get cash now.”
Mnuchin noted Americans can “expect an individual stimulus within two weeks” as he continues working out the finer details with Congress.
“I think it’s clear, we don’t need to send people who make millions of dollars a year checks, OK?” Mnuchin said. “Obviously some people shouldn’t be getting checks for $1,000.”
“This is stuff that needs to be done now, the president has instructed to me that this is no fault to American workers,” he said.
“You can think of this as something like business interruption payments for the American workers,” Mnuchin said.
“It’s going to be big, it’s going to be bold,” Trump added. “And the level of enthusiasm to get something done, I don’t think I’ve seen anything quite like it.”
