The president of the United States, Donald Trump assured that the Democrats are withholding the approval of the measure that would grant incentive checks for coronavirus, this due to the pulse that exists between both parties on what will be the final package of economic aid for the emergency .
“Democrats are withholding the $ 1,200 to $ 3,400 checks (family of four) that were ready to be sent!” The president said on his Twitter account.

Trump also railed against Democratic Senator Chuck Schumer. The president said he was disappointed with the senator for “blocking the temporary extension of the unemployment benefits of $ 600. The Democrats do nothing they are more interested in playing politics than in helping our people who deserve it,” said the executive.
“Pelosi and Schumer blocked desperately needed unemployment payments, which is terrible, especially since they fully understand that it was not the fault of the unemployed workers, it is the fault of China!” Trump posted in another tweet.
Gap in negotiations for a new aid package
Since last week, talks have continued in the federal government about what the aid package will be. Also, various Republican senators presented measures for individual checks, unemployment funds, among others.
However, the differences between the Democrats ‘and Republicans’ proposals have not reached a consensus.
“Pelosi & Schumer have no interest in making a deal that is good for our country and our people. All they want is a trillion dollars, and much more, for their states governed by the radical left, most of whom they are doing very badly, “Trump said.
