President Trump has just put out a video asking for Congress to come back and amend its COVID relief and omnibus spending bill, increasing individual relief payouts to $2,000 from $600.
Wow, ok, Pres Trump is asking Congress to come back and amend the COVID relief/Omnibus spending bill:
"I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple," he says. https://t.co/4pRZPfLz6K

BREAKING: Trump calls the COVID relief bill a “disgrace”, slams the amount of “wasteful spending” in it, citing money going to foreign countries, etc, and asks Congress to amend the bill to increase direct payments to Americans from “ridiculously low” $600 to $2,000. @FOXLA https://t.co/0i3nc35Jb2

Trump tells Congress to amend the stimulus bill or "the next administration will have to deliver a covid relief package"
He wants them to remove "wasteful and unnecessary items," citing expenditures that are part of the omnibus spending bill, not the attached stimulus package. https://t.co/BHgI9wix6f

and he is right, in places like #California where restaurants and other businesses have been forced to close by politicians many times with no science or data behind it, they deserve more support then $600 #COVID19 #StimulusBill

There’s no excuse for other countries getting millions while we have to be happy with $600.
