Trump Proposes $1 Trillion Coronavirus Package

  • Executive

By: Ted Patterson

In Brief:

As the threat of Coronavirus grows daily, President Trump is proposing an economic rescue bill that could top $1 trillion.

The Background:

The AP reports:

In a massive federal effort, President Donald Trump asked Congress to speed emergency checks to Americans, enlisted the military for MASH-like hospitals and implored ordinary people — particularly socially active millennials — to do their part by staying home to stop the spread of the coronavirus.

His proposed economic package alone could approach $1 trillion, a rescue initiative not seen since the Great Recession. Trump wants checks sent to the public within two weeks and is urging Congress to pass the eye-popping stimulus package in a matter of days.

Why It Matters:

Liberal policies are dividing our country, literally.

Notable Quotes:

“This is a very unique situation. We’ve put a proposal on that table that would attract a trillion dollars into the economy.”

  • Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin
