Pelosi responds to Trump's request for $2,000 stimulus checks: 'Let's do it!'
House Spokeswoman Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., Was quick to let President Trump know she was ready to help if he really wanted a coronavirus relief bill of $ 2,000 in direct payments to Americans.
On Tuesday evening, Trump blew up the $ 900 billion package for economic aid approved by Congress on Monday evening and called the measure a "shame". Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin pushed for $ 600 stimulus checks, an amount Trump described as "ridiculously low". The President did not participate in the negotiations and proposed not to sign the bill until it is amended to include checks for $ 2,000.
