PRESIDENT Donald Trump promised to deliver a “tremendous stimulus package immediately after the election” and vowed to “take back the House and do very well in the Senate.”
President Trump made some bold remarks on Friday when speaking to reporters outside the White House about the next stimulus bill– even as talks over a relief deal appear deadlocked four days before the election.
“I think we’re going to have a fantastic presidential election because nobody has done more than this administration in the first three-and-a-half years.
“There’s never been a president or an administration that’s done more than we have for our farmers, for our manufactures, for everybody in terms of tax cuts, for our military,” Trump said Friday.
The president reiterated his claims that no administration has done more than his and is convinced they'll have a great election.
Trump's remarks on a stimulus deal comes after he once again blamed Nancy Pelosi as the reason why a deal hasn't been reached.
The president said Pelosi's "only interested in bailing out badly run, crime-ridden Democrat cities and state."
Trump claimed the House speaker is “not interested in helping the people."
On Tuesday, Trump also vowed to deliver "the best stimulus package you've ever seen," as he again believed Republicans will take back the House after the election.
“I think you have a lot of congressmen and women – Republican – that are going to get elected. We’ll take back the House. We’ll hold the Senate. We’ll hold the White House,” he added.
House Speaker Pelosi echoed her claims that Democrats and Republicans will "continue to put pen to paper" in hopes of funding an agreement.
The plan to have a deal before Election Day hit rock-bottom on Tuesday, after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell adjourned the Senate after it voted to confirm Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.
If no deal is reached by Nov. 3, Congress will face a Dec. 11 deadline to approving another spending bill in order to prevent a government shut down.
The Dec. 11 date could be a window of opportunity for lawmakers to pass another stimulus bill.
Both sides are negotiating a $2trillion package that includes $1,200 stimulus checks, unemployment benefits, small business aid, state and local funding.
The White House had initially proposed a $1.8trillion package, but House Speaker Pelosi rejected the bill saying it "wasn't passable."
“It wasn’t passable, it didn’t crush the virus, it didn’t do any of the things it was supposed to do,” she said last week.
