.THE WHITE HOUSE (Gray DC) - In a broadcast exclusive, President Donald Trump tells Gray Television Washington Bureau Chief Jacqueline Policastro hes ready to step in to provide another stimulus to Americans struggling during the coronavirus pandemic.
The plague came in, and its not the peoples fault. So, we want to take care of them, said Trump.
The president said he wants to extend the $600 weekly benefit to unemployed Americans.
Do you think people on unemployment should continue to get the extra $600 each week?
Yeah. I want to get them. I want to get them a lot. It's not their fault. It's China's fault that this whole thing happened. We were setting records. We were doing unbelievable business. It was an incredible thing, we've never done so well. Breaking records on employment, on the stock market, although the stock market's almost what it was, which is pretty incredible in itself, but we were breaking every record you can do. And then this, the plague, I call it the plague, came in and it's not the people's fault. So we want to take care of them. Really good. Take care of them very well.

Nothing for us who’ve been working for all of this time?
No raises? No vacation? Risk to health? Travel costs? Labor?
make the same just because we give a sh!?
Why $600? Why not $250?
It’s an election year, you know.
If that what it takes to get Trump re-elected go for it let’s not fuss around about $200 or $600 we’ve got a country at stake and overall Trump has been the most conservative the best for the economy the best for our security the best for our values overall let him do what he wants 3 months before the election go Trump
ONLY if they have to PROVE they are looking for a job.
Apparently the ones hurt most are the ‘underemployed’ and I do see a LOT of HELP WANTED signs at construction sites, landscapers etc
Just because you are a career ‘do you want fries with that’ doesn’t mean you can’t work in some sort of laborer job.
DEFINITELY drop those whose companies have ‘went back’ and they refuse to do so.
Of course it wouldn’t hurt if the companies supplied whoever with those that refuse to come back to work.
‘They’ are willing to turn one in for not wearing a mask etc, if you are going to be a ‘snitch’ make it so it save us from the frauds.
Yes. We can’t afford to lose this one.
Hate to agree, but nonetheless, I agree
I have to say Im for the extra $600 to be extended, I know a lot of people who cannot return to work who made a lot more than this and wont survive without it.
So what do you tell the millions that have had their small business destroyed by the government?
Whatever at this point. Reeks of desperation though.
He won’t get credit for that. He does not get credit for anything he has done it makes me sick.
Same here. Fortunately, I don’t need it and sympathize with those who actually do.
Those who stay unemployed due to this are dishonest, but I’m well aware of human nature.
I’m also aware that the election forces this upon President Trump, and reluctantly accept it due to the unacceptable alternative.
Not desperation, reality.
I suppose he could go hardass, which most of us would cheer all the way to President Biden.
Reality bites, but what would you expect considering the reality of current events?
so why am I essential and MUST work while others are staying home collecting, collecting, collecting...
essential workers who had to “show up” should get a tax holiday...
Hey idiots! What about an extra 600 a week for those of us who have kept working?
What extra expenses are the unemployed getting that we don’t?
I agree with you. A lot of people who are unable to go out and get ‘laboring’ jobs, but were let go from jobs that they WERE capable of doing, are in danger of being evicted from their homes, and are having difficulty paying for the food and medicine that they need.
So many people think President Trump is a greedy, rich ‘racist’, but this shows that he’s thinking about the people who have little and are facing disaster.
Very true, many hanging on by the thinnest of threads, we can send the bill to China
