Summary

Trump said Tuesday he wanted to postpone any negotiations until after the November election, but since then, he has reversed course, pushing for standalone bills to send out stimulus checks and provide relief to airlines and reopening discussions over a comprehensive stimulus plan.Trump seemed to undercut his administration's negotiation Friday afternoon, telling Rush Limbaugh in an interview, "I would like to see a bigger stimulus package frankly than either the Democrats or the Republicans are offering."White House spokesperson Alyssa Farah told reporters later Friday the administration wants to "stay below 2 trillion."Any negotiated deal, however, will have to pass through the Republican-controlled Senate, where members have expressed hesitancy at spending trillions of dollars on COVID-19 relief.At an event in Kentucky last Friday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said it was “unlikely” a stimulus deal would occur before the election.Although House Democratic leadership has rejected the latest White House proposal, it appears some progressives are eager for a deal.
