  1. Joe Biden Has Built a Career on Betraying Black Voters

  2. The Scrooge who stole Xmas!!

  3. He has mentioned many times that he wanted a big stimulus a huge stimulus in his words but the people that work under him ignored him so don't say he's never mentioned it he mentioned it before and after election

  4. I'm a Biden supporter, but I lean more toward McConnell being right in
    this, than Pelosi. $300.00/wk through December for unemployment
    assistance to the states is better than nothing. It's not $600.00/wk.,
    but still… It seems like a lot of the items Pelosi wants should be
    sorted out in the general budget, not attached to this bill. For one
    thing, arguing over the language in the republicans testing and tracing
    plan is ridiculous. Testing and tracing are inaccurate, for one thing.
    It also has little to do with the main thing, and that is the
    unemployment extensions. 'Pelosi and Schumer initially
    sought a $3.4 trillion relief package, then said some time ago they were
    willing to scale that back by at least a trillion dollars. But it was
    not clear whether the White House would consider the $2.2 trillion sum
    proposed in the new legislation. Meadows has said that Trump would be
    willing to sign a $1.3 trillion relief package.
    Pelosi also faces pressure from moderate House Democrats who say they
    want to see bipartisan aid proposals that have a chance of becoming law.
    The new proposal included $436 billion for state and local governments,
    as well as money for education, testing, airline industry workers and
    for a small business loan program known as the Paycheck Protection
    Program, a statement from House Democrats said.
    It would also provide a new round of direct payments to Americans of
    $1,200 per taxpayer and restore federal unemployment benefits of $600 a
    week through January'. Come on, let's just get an unemployment bill
    through, like $450.00/wk. compromise, and do the rest in the budget

  5. Trump ,u I not ready yet 4 America

  6. This is what a narcissistic sociopath looks like oh yeah throwing in Con Artists.

  7. He can keep that money and play the Texas hold'em poker game,,as long as he is not realected a second term, president Joe Biden 👍🏻

  8. Mitch McConnell doesn't care if you can't eat or pay your rent that's why he will give you no relief

  9. Trump ends talks about a multi-trillion dollar bailout of Democrat run, riot ruined cities. There, fixed it for ya!

  10. no donald trump is destroying the USA they don’t allow any thing we need

  11. U.S.A, the most successful dictatorship propaganda machine in all the world's history.
    Suffered by fools.

  12. I’ll get Nancy Pelosi off her butt and get it done get it done right without all the stupid stuff in there just worry about the Covid and not everything else

  13. He was always playing games with the lives and livelihood of millions of ordinary citizens, inflicting pain and suffering, and never serious. The election results will settle the score and he will have no incentive to stonewall. If democrats win both the presidency and Senate, hopefully in a landslide, they will not need GOP support to bring long awaited relief to suffering people and it will be GAME OVER for Moscow Mitch. Unfortunately, they will still be in office until around Jan 22, 2021 and can do terrible harm. Only a precipitous drop in the stock market can change Trump 's mind. I hope Democrats are gearing up for this event, and ready to go ASAP.

  14. Nancy Pelosi wants billions of stimulus money to fund other insane projects having nothing to do with covid relief. When’s asked to fund the people only of course she refused to approve. Stealing form you projecting blame on others is all the woman knows. Sympathy to all who come here for reliable news true Natzi propaganda look beyond group think have no part in voting for your own destruction

  15. Disgusting communist propaganda-MOVE BACK TO CHINA NBC

  16. He never had covid ,he is just an actor dont forget

  17. Trump is the best president in history of the world

  18. Pelosi wants to give money relief to illegals, wants to give money to states that before codvid were in bad shape….trump 2020 oh yeah baby😘🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼✊🏼

  19. Trump the worst virus this country has ever seen and causing more deaths than any other commander in chief this country has had votr him out

  20. Trump got he's finger in side of trump veliver @ss …

  21. It is not his money, to hold it back until you win. Liar and cheater, shame on you trump
    How many more are sick in the WH

  22. If America was in a ground war and ALL the generals plans were to attack from the south and Trump ordered the attack from the north and we lost 210,000 American women and men in 6 months Trump would have been removed from office!! Covid 19 is a war and WE are LOSING. VOTE

  23. Contagious in chief!!😀😀😀😀

  24. This cant be true watch this video and know the truth about coronavirus

  25. I wouldn't give Pelosi a cent!! Absolutely the right choice!

  26. Trump can't halt any bills, that is up to congress. The President can only veto a bill once its passed.

  27. We are never going to see another stimulus check it's not even worth $1,200 you know how fast that's going a goal and then you going to have to have another one unemployment is so bad right now they won't do nothing about that because they want to fight all the time not even worth it don't vote
