Tuesday, President Trump instructed aides to stop negotiating on another round of COVID-19 relief until after the election. He Tweeted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was “not negotiating in good faith” and said he asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell focus before the election into confirming his Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett.

I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” President Trump Tweeted.

Last week, the White House said it was backing a $400/wk virus chaos jobless benefit and inferred the possibility of a COVID-19 relief bill of $1.6-T. His offer was rejected by Speaker Pelosi.

Fed Chairman Powell warned earlier Tuesday that the economic recovery remains fragile without further economic stimulus.
