Trump eyes weekend executive order if coronavirus relief talks stall
From The Hill:
“They’re being drawn now,” Trump said of the orders he has sought on unemployment benefits, evictions and other issues. “We’ll see what happens. It’s possible we’ll make a deal, but it’s also possible we won’t.”
White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) are again set to meet on Capitol Hill Thursday evening to continue negotiations.
Both sides say that they want to reach an agreement on key issues by Friday, but Meadows emerged from talks on Wednesday saying negotiators were “trillions of dollars apart in terms of what Democrats and Republicans hopefully will ultimately compromise on.”
