Trump: Increase Stimulus To $2,000

In a speech critical of Congress for only allocating $600 per person as a COVID19 stimulus payment, President Donald Trump called on Congress to increase the payment to $2,000 per person or $4,000 per couple.

Sen. Chuck Schumer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi have agreed to Trump’s request. The decision now sits with Sen. Mitch McConnell as Majority Leader of the Senate.

Please watch the video of President Trump and share your thoughts in the comment section. Do you agree or disagree with his call for the stimulus payments to be raised to $2,000?
