President Donald Trump just received some fantastic news. This ‘reversal’ has shocked the GOP — no one expected it to happen at the last minute.
According to Fox News, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) have both signaled that Congress could finally be close to a deal for a second coronavirus relief package.
This, of course, is a reversal from before the election. Pelosi intentionally stalled on relief — refusing to strike any kind of compromise — just to hurt Trump. She doesn’t actually care about the American people.
Still, as McConnell said, “We’re making significant progress and I’m optimistic that we’re gonna be able to complete an understanding sometime soon.” This is welcome news, but Pelosi should’ve been on board from the start.
It is why her now declaring that “we’ll be on schedule to get the job done” comes off as politically convenient. She should be ashamed of herself for putting election-year politics above the security and health of Americans.
Families and businesses needed relief weeks ago, and it is Pelosi’s fault this didn’t happen. But this is better late than never — and Trump is eager to sign a deal. Let’s get it done and move forward.
