Published

President Donald Trump has called upon Congress to get a second round of stimulus checks out to American families who have been negatively impacted by the coronavirus pandemic as the end-of-the-year deadline for a COVID-19 relief package draws near.

“Right now, I want to see checks – for more money than they’re talking about – going to people,” Trump told Fox News’ Brian Kilmeade. “I’m pushing it very hard, and to be honest with you, if the Democrats really wanted to do the deal, they’d do the deal.”

Trump has privately indicated that he would support sending a direct cash payment of up to $2,000, according to The Washington Post. The federal government sent out $1,200 stimulus checks earlier this year to millions of Americans as part of the $2.2 trillion CARES Act, which Congress passed in March.

The president’s comments come amid a renewed push on Capitol Hill to pass another round of emergency aid for families and workers still reeling from the pandemic before the end of the year. A group of bipartisan senators unveiled a $908 billion framework two weeks ago that’s garnered support from Democratic leaders, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

The aid package allocates about $300 billion in funding for small businesses through the Paycheck Protection Program, $240 billion in aid for state and local governments, $180 billion to extend boosted unemployment benefits at $300 per week through March, and includes liability protections for businesses that remain open during the pandemic.

The bill does not include a second round of stimulus checks, which has earned the ire of Sens. Bernie Sanders and Jeff Hawley. Not traditionally the kind of folks you would see agreeing with one another on something of a political nature, but hey, COVID-19 has brought out the strangeness of our world.

Hawley actually released a statement on the topic of not passing a bill before Christmas break, saying, “It would be a dereliction of duty if Congress adjourns for Christmas without having a vote on providing working families with direct payments. Working people are struggling. And they should be the first people given relief, not last.”

Sanders also released a statement saying, “I am not one of the members of the Senate who shuts down, does this or does that and keeps you here for the weekend. I don’t do that. But this I want to say right now, I am prepared to withdraw my objection at this moment, but I will not be prepared to withdraw an objection next week.”

President Trump and his administration put down an offer of $916 billion, which included a round of $600 stimulus payments for adults. However, the legislation compensates for that by taking the old economic knife and slashing the funding for federal unemployment benefits.

Democrats were quick to reject that proposal. Both Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer calling the move “unacceptable.”

Apparently, providing aid for those who are actually in trouble is not a good thing.

Save conservative media!

Dem Rep. Implies National Guard Members Who Voted Trump May Target Libs At Inauguration

What a horrible thing to say!

We’re just over two weeks into the new year and we already have a quote that may hold up as the most ridiculous of 2021. Remember, this guy was elected to office. What does that say about the people who voted for him? It’s because of people like Goofy McGoofball in the clip below that America has become such a liberal cesspool. During a Monday appearance on CNN, McGoofball said, “You know I was thinking, the Guard is 90 some-odd percent male. Only about 20 percent of white males voted for Biden. You’ve got to figure that in the Guard, which is predominantly more conservative…there are probably not more than 25 percent of the people that are there protecting us that voted for Biden. The other 75 percent are in the class that would be in the large class of folks who might want to do something. There were military people and police who took oaths to defend the Constitution, who didn’t do it and were in the insurrection. So it does concern me.” WATCH: https://twitter.com/tomselliott/status/1351196676036435972?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1351196676036435972%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-democrat-argues-national-guard-members-who-voted-for-trump-may-be-a-threat-to-bidens-safety%2F From The Daily Wire: Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (CA) added to the already deep divide in our nation during a online meeting with constituents in San Francisco on Saturday, claiming the Trump supporters who breached the Capitol on Wednesday chose their “whiteness over democracy.” Pelosi said, “When that assault was taking place on the Capitol, 3,865 people in our country died of the coronavirus, many of them people of color because of the injustice of it all. The next day, on Thursday, 4,000 people died of the coronavirus. Why? Because decisions were made at the highest level, months before in the Oval Office, of denial, distortion, delay, calling it a ‘hoax.’” She added, “I thought it was going to be an epiphany for…

WATCH: Melania Trump Delivers Powerful & Moving Farewell Message As First Lady

Gorgeous, as always!

She wasn’t unbearable like Hillary Clinton. She wasn’t as polarizing as Michelle Obama. But because she is married to Donald Trump, Melania Trump is the worst first lady in American history. That’s how the mainstream media will remember the woman who speaks five languages fluently; the former model whose mere presence is a sight for sore eyes. FLOTUS’s farewell message is one that should be replayed for decades to come. From New York Post: First lady Melania Trump on Monday released a nearly seven-minute farewell message urging Americans to choose “love over hatred” and “peace over violence.” The video filmed at the White House was posted to Twitter fewer than 48 hours before President Trump leaves office Wednesday at noon. “As Donald and I conclude our time in the White House, I think of all the people I have taken home in my heart and their incredible stories of love, patriotism and devotion,” she said.
