Trump orders aides to halt talks on COVID-19 relief
By Morgan Chalfant - 10/06/20 03:01 PM EDT

President Trump said Tuesday that he has instructed his top aides to stop negotiating with Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on future coronavirus stimulus legislation until after the November election.


Trump, who is himself currently being treated for COVID-19, accused Pelosi in a series of tweets of "not negotiating in good faith" and seeking "bailouts" for states poorly run by Democratic officials.

"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," Trump tweeted.

Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith. I am rejecting their...

Hmm.  What's at stake here is (almost) a cool trillion,  and that may be an issue that resonates with the citizenry.   That's a trillion that will repaid by our grandkids.   The Dems are fully revealing they intend to rape the taxpayers even as they strip them of effective police protection.   

My 401k took a hit today,  but screw it.   Let's make the stakes about more than a referendum on Trump.  Let's make it about a trillion dollars,  and the income and wealth that will be diverted to unproductive government use just to pay that nut off.

Biden pounces on Trump decision to end COVID-19 relief talks

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden slammed President Trump on Tuesday for rejecting further talks on a COVID-19 stimulus bill until after the election.

In a statement, the former vice president said Trump "turned his back" on first responders and U.S. businesses and accused him of caring more about securing the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court in the weeks ahead.

"Make no mistake: if you are out of work, if your business is closed, if your child’s school is shut down, if you are seeing layoffs in your community, Donald Trump decided today that none of that — none of it — matters to him," said Biden.


"There will be no help from Washington for the foreseeable future. Instead, he wants the Senate to use it’s time to confirm his Supreme Court Justice nominee before the election, in a mad dash to make sure that the Court takes away your health care coverage as quickly as possible," he continued.

I think this is what Pelosi was hoping for all along...that Trump would just give up and wait until after the election.

Now Pelosi and Biden have their talking points that Trump doesn't care to help the unemployed.

Trump is gonna have to explain why he ended the negotiations now.. :chairbang:

Trump defends move to halt relief talks, accuses Democrats of playing 'games'

President Trump on Tuesday night defended his decision to halt talks with congressional Democrats over a coronavirus relief package, accusing them of not being serious in their negotiations.

“Crazy Nancy Pelosi and the Radical Left Democrats were just playing “games” with the desperately needed Workers Stimulus Payments. They just wanted to take care of Democrat failed, high crime, Cities and States. They were never in it to help the workers, and they never will be!” he tweeted.

6:36 PM · Oct 6, 2020

excerpt
The move marks a risky gamble in the final sprint to Election Day, essentially leaving economic progress in limbo as millions of Americans remain unemployed and businesses across the country remain shuttered.

Even if negotiators had been able to reach a deal, there were concerns in the White House and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) that a stimulus package with a price tag of at least $1.6 trillion would have difficulty garnering the support of enough Republican senators to pass.

The decision was quickly condemned by Democrats, with Pelosi accusing Trump of shirking his responsibilities as president by shutting down talks to help millions of Americans hurting during a coronavirus-plagued economic downturn.

“Today, once again, President Trump showed his true colors: putting himself first at the expense of the country, with the full complicity of the GOP Members of Congress,” she said in a statement, adding that the White House “is in complete disarray.”

Uh, look in the mirror, Nancy.  Sorry, but I don't agree with sending our money to those who spend money on illegals and other pet projects instead of the workers.
You have millions for non-citizens yet give nothing to those who really need and merit the help.
Then  you opened the jail doors and crime skyrocketed, yet cut your police force.  You refuse to let your officers do their jobs.  You send Covid patients into nursing homes causing a genocide of the elderly, yet all of this is somehow Trump's fault and he's the one playing politics.  Gad I despise these Democrats.  It would be nice if once in awhile they would put their agenda aside for the good of the country.

The House & Senate should IMMEDIATELY Approve 25 Billion Dollars for Airline Payroll Support, & 135 Billion Dollars for Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business. Both of these will be fully paid for with unused funds from the Cares Act. Have this money. I will sign now!

Later, Trump tweeted that he would also sign a bill that would give some Americans $1,200 stimulus checks, tagging top negotiators in the post.

A few posts up you criticized Trump for calling off negotiations because of the rats' demand for more pork. Which is it?

And the criticism is where exactly?

In one post I asked how Trump thought he would be able to pass a bill after the election?  Pelosi will almost certainly still hold the House, and even if the Democrats don't and the GOP still holds the Senate then Schumer can block it at will.  So how is Trump going to do it?  No criticism, just a question.

I my second post I agreed with mystery-ak when she noted that Pelosi doesn't want a bill passed, she wants an issue to run on.  Where is that a criticism of Trump?

And when I said that both the GOP and the Democrats have no problem raping the taxpayers with deficit spending then that is just a simple statement of fact.  Where is that wrong?

You clearly imply calling off the negotiations is a mistake in post 10.

Negotiating only makes sense when both sides do so in good faith.

With the democrat-communists, the possibility of that grows lower each year, as they transmogrify from being less-and-less "democrat" to more-and-more "communist".

Pelosi can barely hold thoughts together.  Her nominee has no thoughts except those piped into his brain.  Even then he blows it.  Can't make this stuff up!   :silly:
