Ladies and gentlemen, it has happened, it is here.
The long awaited stimulus package just passed both the Senate and House with easy. Estimated at $900 billion, the relief package includes extended federal unemployment benefits, including $600 checks for individuals.
However, the reaction from people wasn’t as expected, and many slammed the massive 5,600-page document. Detractors add that the bill simply doesn’t go far enough to help Americans.
President Trump was one of those detractors.
Several outlets report that POTUS allegedly ripped the new relief bill, calling it a “disgrace.” The one thing he mainly focused on was the individual payout part, saying that the bill “has almost nothing to do with COVID.”
The president then continued, calling out the $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill, which he sent truckloads of cash to foreign countries and special interests.
And may we remind you that he did this during a powerful speech which he posted a video of, on Twitter:

The first thing he demanded is for increase of the individual checks from $600 to $2,000.
He then proceeded to criticize the government saying that it should do another rounding of funding for small businesses.
President Donald Trump ratings skyrocketed because of this. He managed to get even the support of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who during a recent public addressing said,
“At least the President has agreed to $2,000. Let’s do it!”
Do you agree with President Trump’s remarks?
