President Trump agreed to pass several independent CCP Virus (coronavirus) relief measures on Tuesday evening, Oct. 6, after earlier in the day rejecting a virus stimulus package proposal put forward by the Democrats.

The president had said that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) was “not negotiating in good faith.” He asked Republicans to focus on the nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court instead, and leave the CCP Virus stimulus package negotiations until after the election in November, as reported by the New York Post.

“Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bail out poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith,” President Trump tweeted.

“I am rejecting their request, and looking to the future of our Country. I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business.”

The plan he explained on Tuesday evening includes a new round of stimulus checks. The president tweeted, “If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy?”

In another tweet the president wrote, “The House & Senate should IMMEDIATELY Approve 25 Billion Dollars for Airline Payroll Support, & 135 Billion Dollars for Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business. Both of these will be fully paid for with unused funds from the Cares Act. Have this money. I will sign now!”

Discussions between the White House and Democrats have stretched out for weeks, with no real progress regarding the terms of the package.

Last week Pelosi agreed to pass standalone legislation, relenting on her push for a single massive bill, in order to save airlines from being forced into mass layoffs.
