“Once we get the economy back, it is gonna all come back to us very quickly.”
Friday, President Trump vowed to keep pushing for more federal spending until the economy recovers from the coronavirus outbreak, and said Americans can expect “much more” than $1,000 checks from the government.
At a White House news conference Friday he said that if “there’s not enough money” in a stimulus bill currently under debate in Congress, “we will do something later, I am sure.”
President Trump and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin advocate for the bill to include direct payments to American families.
“We are not talking about a thousand dollar check, we are talking about much more than that,” he said.
He assured Americans that the economy would quickly get back on its feet after the coronavirus outbreak fades, though he said there may be large US job losses in the near term.
