With his approval rating at its highest point ever, with 60 percent of Americans approving of his CCP Virus response efforts, President Trump boosted confidence even more at the White House briefing on Tuesday, March 24.
The president declared that Americans should gain hope from the fact the country is nearing “the end of our historic battle” with “the invisible enemy.”
He expressed his own hope that many businesses will be operational again by Easter. “That would be a great thing for our country, and we’re all working very hard to make that a reality. … Easter is a very special day for many reasons.” he said.
Director of the United States National Economic Council Larry Kudlow added an unprecedented fiscal stimulus package may soon be passed by Congress. “This package will be the single largest main street assistance program in the history of the United States,” Kudlow said, adding that although negotiations were still ongoing, a vote is coming soon.
Kudlow said the CCP Virus bill working its way through Democrat-driven congressional gridlock would total $6 trillion: $4 trillion in liquidity from the Federal Reserve, and $2 trillion in new money. Typical annual appropriations from Congress in a given fiscal year are around $1.2 trillion-$4 trillion, and total expenditures roughly $4.3 trillion, reported Fox News.
Lawmakers are much closer to making a deal on the $2 trillion package, and the president took time to praise their efforts. “I also want to thank Congress, because whether or not we’re happy that they haven’t quite gotten there yet, they have been working long hours. I’m talking Republicans and Democrats, all of them, the House, the Senate. I want to thank Congress because they are really trying to get there. And I think they will,” said President Trump.
The future’s looking brighter, and “there’s light at the end of the tunnel,” said the president. The Dow Jones Industrial Average had its best day since 1933.
“The Dow surged over 2,100 points,” Trump said. “That’s the all-time record in the history of the exchange.”
The president tweeted on Sunday that, “WE CANNOT LET THE CURE BE WORSE THAN THE PROBLEM ITSELF,”and he declared at the Fox News virtual town hall that he “would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”
