President Donald Trump threw a late night temper tantrum blaming House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) for Senate Democrats blocking a pathetic coronavirus relief bill that had very little to help people and a $500 billion slush fund for corporations without any oversight whatsoever.
Democrats rejected the bill several times on Monday because it’s a corporate giveaway, one that Trump says he will oversee because he is salivating at the opportunity to rob American taxpayers blind to give billions to himself, his family and his businesses.
Meanwhile, the bill provided little relief to the majority of Americans who need it most. Again, Republicans wrote this bill without input from Democrats. It’s NOT bipartisan, yet Trump threw a hissy fit at Pelosi after the end of his press conference.
Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation. The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies. They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!

Pelosi and Democrats have been working this whole time while Senate Republicans were the ones who took a break for days as the pandemic worsened. And this bill was a bad bill that served mainly as a bailout for corporations and wealthy CEOs.
Twitter users ripped Trump a new one for the unfounded attack.
What extended vacation? She’s been working. In fact she worked over the same weekend as @senatemajldr was off with his beer buddy Kavanaugh.

Democrats were begging the Trump administration to take this seriously in early February, but Trump was too busy playing golf. pic.twitter.com/Ocl5lp9jMr

Anyone else notice how upset Trump and Republicans get when they can’t just give public funds away with no strings attached to their benefactors and friends?

First of all she wasn’t on vacation. Second, Donald Trump ridiculing someone else for taking vacations is laughable.

You are asking for trillions of dollars with no oversight. Lol.

The Democrats are fighting for the American people, while the Rethuglicans are fighting to give another bailout to the wealthy and YOU.
Take the $500 billion corporate bailout w/ no oversight OUT.

Liar. The DEMs wanted:
– 4 months of pay based on earnings as part of an expanded unemployment package.
– A stop on mortgage payments with eviction protection
– Student loan payment cancellation
– Ensure corporations would retain workers and not buy back stock.

Our nation is dealing with a pandemic that has wrecked havoc on public health and the economy. But while corporations already have enough money to get through this crisis, the average American is struggling to make ends meet. This is the moment to help the American people, not corporations. Corporate America has been given enough money already and it’s time for that to stop in favor of giving money to the people for a change. That’s what Democrats are fighting for.
