Trump’s team - led by Mnuchin - helped negotiate covid relief deal. WH officials are on record saying he’d sign it. And after the House passed it with a huge veto-proof majority, 359-53, and the Senate approved it, 92-6, he now says he wants it amended and calls bill a “disgrace” https://t.co/KsAQWSosJ2— Manu Raju (@mkraju) December 23, 2020

At last, the President has agreed to $2,000 — Democrats are ready to bring this to the Floor this week by unanimous consent. Let’s do it! https://t.co/Th4sztrpLV— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) December 23, 2020
