According to Yahoo news “Trump gave approval to Congress’s bipartisan $900 billion stimulus package Sunday evening after objecting to the bill earlier last week. In approving the stimulus package, Trump also signed Congress’s $1.4 trillion omnibus bill providing funds for the government through the end of the fiscal year, averting a government shutdown. The virus relief package included a more modest $600 payment that fell short of Trump’s demand to cut $2,000 checks to most Americans. Trump also called for lawmakers to cut items he considered wasteful and unnecessary” in the bill.”
