President Donald Trump just voted a bill he criticized from Congress, and it looks like he just received an opportunity to place another.
With the second COVID relief package just being passed by Congress, the POTUS didn’t need a long time to make a list of all the things the package was missing, and it seems that he is so serious in his demand from the government to do more, that he is threatening a veto.
We can all understand the pressure he wants to put, and why. After all, Congress did promise $1,200 payments to hard-hit Americans, but at the end all the bill allotted was $600. The bill provides billions to foreign nations and non-citizens, but despite this, there seems to be no more help for the American people.
To go into details, President Trump called on Congress to fix these glaring errors, and Pelosi appears willing to support him too. During one of his recent public addressing, he mentioned that he considers filing a ‘pocket veto.’ The way this works is that a pocket veto doesn’t involve the president signing anything. All he has to do is table the bill, until Congress adjourns. Then by default, the bill is considered vetoed.
Do you agree that it’s unfair that instead of providing support for Americans and finding ways to urge states to reopen, Congress is doing very little for citizens, but a lot more for foreign countries?
What do you think about this?
