President Trump slammed the recently passed $900 billion COVID-19 relief package as a “disgrace” on Tuesday evening, urging Congress to amend the bill and increase the amount of money in direct payments to Americans.

“The bill they are now planning to send back to my desk is much different than anticipated,” Trump said on Twitter. “It really is a disgrace.”
“I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple,” Trump said.
“I’m also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation, and to send me a suitable bill, or else the next administration will have to deliver a COVID relief package. And maybe that administration will be me,” said Trump.
Nancy Pelosi jumped on the idea of adding more money to the bill, saying ‘let’s do it’, even though it would be money for Americans rather than Democrats’ pet projects. She may not be so eager to cut wasteful pork from the bill.
What do you think will happen?
Because of the kind of man he is, when the Chinese Virus hit last year Donald chose to stay in Washington to work through Christmas while Pelosi and Congress went home. Now it’s payback time to ruin Nancy’s holiday plans, and save the wortking middle class from bankruptcy in the process, and defund the hidden bill Pakistani, Kennedy Center type funding schemes that just end up kicking back money to the Democrat re-election campaigns. Just how do you think Nancy gets all that campain raised money to make her fellow COngressmen feared and beholden to her in fund raising? She is feared not loved by her fellow Democrats. Follow the money back to China, Pakistan, and other foreign entites who like Iran got planeloads of cash, of which a percent found its way back to Democrats and built Obama’s 12 million home. just kike Hunter Biden arranged for dad. who when they leave office 10 times richer than the total of all their government salaries can buy mansions while WE THE PEOPLE lose our homes in soccialist Democrat city and state shutdowns directed and designed to eliminate the productive American middle class and make us dependent upon government, and all equally poor in socialism.
IMO day one of covid he should have INSTRUCTED the budget office, to CUT THE PAY OF everyone in govt… STARTING with congress.
Trump shames Congress for it’s pork
Sadly he can shame all he wants but congress much like Quid Pro Joe are under the Dem Protection Program and this will go unreported.
We no longer have news outlets we have propaganda organizations whose sole purpose to lie and decisive the American people.
AND even if it GETS reported on, SINCE THESE soul-less hacks, don’t CARE about being shamed, it won’t change one damn thing.
“What do you think will happen”? The Republicans In Name Only and the Democrats are all in bed together. So anyone who thinks, that these two New World Order parties, who have sold out the United States, to the World and to China, will ever write a clean bill, is a fool. Also, anyone who thinks the House and Senate, will read these pork bills, is a fool. America last, for “diversity in statues” and “gender studies” in Pakistan!
Trump needs to man up, AND VETO BOTH This bill, AND the defense spending bill. SHUT IT THE HELL DOWN!
Shaming a democrap is impossible.
This was a set-up. Give a piddling amount to the people while lavishing money on all sorts of nonessentials. If President Trump were to sigh it he could be pegged as Scrooge, a skin-flint, then later with Joe Biden as President a much more generous bill would be proposed making him look like he really had the best interests of the country at heart while it would be another political public relations item!
NOW THEY CAN BLAME TRUMP FOR THE LOOMING HUGH TAX INCREASES!
Trump will be blamed for everything over the next 4 years of dum-bo-joe.
BUT of course.. EVERYTHING RIGHT obama or biden did, everything wrong, is all bush and trump’s fault… Says so, right here on page 666 of the dem handbook.
Why do we need to give 1.5 billion to the Egyptian military? And 25 million to Pakistan for gender studies?
FOR WHAT? What the hell did pakistan or egypt DO FOR US, to earn any kickbacks?!
This is for Ltuser: what I meant was the ‘Rats send the money to Pakistan or Egypt or whatever…they take their “share” through fake entities, then the rest gets sent back to the ‘Rats, RINOs, and their buddies (not directly…think offshore accts.) so as to line their own pockets. How do you think they enter office with little, but leave with millions?
From all the bloody perks, and PAC’s.
PRESIDENT TRUMP should VETO the damned pork bill if Congress refuses to eliminate the millions (billions ?) of non covid pork money! This bill sends billions overseas, and is largely not aimed at helping US Citizens! Several years ago he was strong armed into signing another heavily laden pork bill. He approved it very reluctantly, saying he would not sign another one like it! Well, here’s another one! BE THE PRESIDENT, say NO, and KEEP YOUR PROMISE and VETO it!
Isn’t it wonderful to know that in the F…. You Little People porkulus bill that $1 BILLION of OUR tax dollars will go to the companies that researched, weaponized and deliberately released the Chinese virus upon us so that they can continue a never ending cycle of new strains of covid that will, of course, all need NEW vaccines? It’s called job security for “the great reset” coming our way because the world’s elites don’t like the way we humans are managing our societies.Yes, WE THE PEOPLE are funding bio-weapons and our own demise for the human race which we will certainly get with a crazy China Joe win. The CDC is slated for $20 BILLION so the ghoul Fauci and his ilk can continue lying and mandating economy killing edicts. How long are we going to continue paying these people to destroy us??? Just asking.
