Trump says stimulus talks 'very productive;' airlines and $1,200 checks on the table
President Trump said he stopped talks with House Democrats on coronavirus stimuli Tuesday because he "didn't want to play games," but added Thursday that relief for Americans may be back on the table.
"They tried to get things, we tried to get things, it was going nowhere," said Trump to Maria Bartiromo, the host of "Mornings with Maria". "I shut it down. I don't want to play games."
"We're starting to have very productive conversations," he said. "[House Speaker Nancy Pelosi] wants it to happen too. She doesn't want it not to happen. I think she wants it to happen because it's so good for our country."
Trump claimed talks on an airline bailout and stimulus checks worth $ 1,200 per person have resumed.

"It wasn't the workers 'fault. It wasn't our airlines' fault. China did this terrible thing to us. I will not forget that," he said. "We shouldn't injure workers. ... That was a terrible scourge."
