President Trump will veto Democrats’ COVID relief bill.
Democrats’ bill has billions of wasteful spending — it only gave Americans $600.
In his speech, President Trump demanded $2,000 for hard-working Americans.

The Gateway Pundit previously reported:
President Trump gave an address Tuesday evening from the White House on the COVID relief bill in which he called on Congress to redo the $900 billion, 5593 pages long bill passed Monday night after months of negotiations by providing payments to Americans of $2000 per adult or $4000 per couple. The bill passed by the House and Senate contains payments of only $600 per adult American but giving up to $1800 for the families of illegal aliens married to American citizens. The address was posted to Twitter.
Now this: Liberal Democrats have come out in support of increasing payments to $2,000.
Let’s do it. @RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it’s ready to go.
Glad to see the President is willing to support our legislation.

That’s great! I first introduced a bill to provide a $2,000 direct payment with @SenKamalaHarris & @EdMarkey 7 months ago. Now, Mr. President, get Mitch McConnell and your Republican friends to stop opposing it and we can provide working class Americans with $2,000. Let’s do it. https://t.co/fKvqBsqM0k

The Occupant of the White House taking a hard line in support of what Progressives have been fighting for, literally all year, to spite McConnell.

The government shut down the economy, and people need help.
Is it Mitch or Pelosi standing in the way?
