After days of prolonging and avoidance Donald Trump has officially signed the newly designed Covid relief bill for $2.3 trillion dollars.
As we previously reported Trump had originally refused to sign the new law into order while arguing for republicans to issue a stimulus package for $600 to $2000.
It has been indicated that since Trump didn’t sign the bill on Saturday Pandemic Unemployment Assistance recipients and Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation programs could possibly not receive payment for the last week of 2020, reports CNN.
Sources have confirmed that the proposed 11 week unemployment boost for $300 will likely be chopped down to 10 weeks instead.
Trump took to Twitter on Sunday evening to state, Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation.
