President Donald Trump said today that Americans will receive a second stimulus check and that the money will come as part of a bipartisan effort to help the people in our country.
The President did an interview with reporter Joe St. George today outside at The White House and he was asked about another round of stimulus checks as the national economy tries to piece itself back together after the first wave of COVID-19, and as cases nationally begin to go up in several states.
President Trump said a second check is coming and more will be done to help the American people.
"We are, we are," Trump said when asked about a new wave of payments. "We had this going better than anybody's ever seen before. We had the best job numbers, the best economics and the best economy we've ever had. And then we had the virus come in from China and we're rebuilding it again. We will be doing another stimulus package. It will be very good. It will be very generous. And people will be (pleased)."
St. George pressed President Trump on how much will be in the next wave of payments, but the president refused to divulge, saying that negotiations are ongoing.
The bill will be bipartisan and President Trump said it will be done in "the next couple of weeks."
