Trump Kicks COVID Bill Back To Congress; Demands $2,000 Stimulus, Shreds Lawmakers Over Mountain Of Pork

President Trump appeared to threaten to veto the COVID-19 stimulus package that Congress passed almost 24 hours earlier, telling lawmakers to boost checks for Americans to $2,000 as well as “get rid of wasteful and unnecessary items” in the spending bill

Trump said “throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked COVID relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election…”

“it’s taken forever” to get a package and the bill passed “is much different than anticipated.”

“It really is a disgrace,” he added.

Then reeled off a list of disgusting ‘pork’ (read the details here) that has been piled into this record-breaking 5,593-page bill.

As Axios notes, many of the items Trump listed, such as foreign aid, which were not related to COVID-19 are not part of the coronavirus relief package. These form part of the government funding bill, which was passed alongside the coronavirus relief package.

Then he took a shot at Biden and the election

“Send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a COVID relief package and maybe that administration will be me and we will get it done.”

      Demonrats like Speaker of the House Pelosi & Senate Minority Leader Schumer obstructed the President’s original efforts to get a $1,200.00 check to hurting Americans. The Demonrat pursuit of more power was more important than helping our fellow Americans. The Demonrats preferred spending money on foreign nations & pet projects as they went whole HOG on wasting money.

      Congress has proposed a $600.00 check to Americans so they can waste billions on their pet projects (PORK). Now, President Trump has proposed a $2,000.00 check and get rid of the Demonrat PORK. The President’s “pocket veto” (just sit on the idiotic & wasteful spending to other nations) is an effort to work around Pelosi (D) & Schumer (D).

        To make any serious difference to people’s lives the amount would need to be at least $10,000. With all the debt and the rising cost of living, that’s the minimum.

        As for Trump, “you shall know a man from the people he pardons”. Look at the trash Trump is pardoning: tells you who he is really looking after. Is he going to pardon Charles Manson next?

          $2,000.00 is a 233% INCREASE over the Demonrats pork-filled proposal of $600.00 for hurting Americans. $10,000.00 is great for financially-hurting Americans, but it is an onerous burden on the taxpayer & there will be many unintended consequences. Only those that believe in the delusion of MMT (Modern Monetery Theory) think there should be no upper limit on any government expenditure.

          If you canNOT evaluate the merits of BIDEN & TRUMP and see that one of them is clearly better for the country than the other – then I canNOT help you.

      Trump is a goddamn disgrace to anyone that values the republic. He needs to be removed from this country with a force equal to our colonial history. Same, same that asshole Biden.

      It’s time to reclaim our country people.

        Thank You President Trump for doing the right thing again and standing up for the American people.
        The country is going down the drain to Socialism – God help us

      Taxation is theft.

      The credibility of the dollar is utterly destroyed.

      Just bought another $300 of silver. Getting ahead of it this time around. Last ‘stimulus’ the spot price jumped ten bucks practically overnight.

        Taxation is theft. Codes, permits and licenses are extortion. The real question becomes: Why are we allowing this mafia to rule us?

        It’s time for massive civil disobedience to knock this ruling click on their ass.

      While I could just as soon wait a few more weeks, for the $2,000 counteroffer, that doesn’t bring us up to survival wages, or make up for about 3 generations of in-your-face demographic replacement.

      Legal work already completed, towards these ends is still appreciated.

      Pork? The irony…Pakistanis don’t like no stinking pork.
      So safe to say the road to hell is paved with good intentions.

      Gender Studies eh?

      Pakistan is a place I really worry about. Eighty-five countries a woman can’t open up a bank account without her husband’s signature. She can’t inherit property. If you’re a young girl in Pakistan life is pretty tough. So we’re trying to make life better for women throughout the world,

      Hey shit for brains…
      Among homeless families, 67 percent are female-headed. Most homeless families in the United States are led by a young single mother without familiy support and material resources.
      Some of the major factors of homelessness among American women include domestic violence, of which women are the overwhelming victims…..

      How about we address this matter first before we go meddeling into the affairs of Pakistan?

        When they are given one inch, the media shows a shemale, in lipstick and what appears to be a Persian rug, forceably persecuting the other side.

        Bossy womyn are used as a replacement demographic in the workplace.

        Though not especially a sadist, I favor patriarchy and primogeniture.

      Trump is right.

      The bill was over 5,000 pages, it must have taken years to right. Just like the Patriot Act, signed by Bush 2 Oct of 2001, it took over a year to right
