Trump wants IMMEDIATE cash handouts for Americans
Donald Trump wants to send cash to Americans suffering from the coronavirus crisis immediately he said at the White House Tuesday.
'The payroll tax holiday would get money to people over the next six to eight months. We're looking to send checks to Americans immediately,' explained Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in the press briefing room. 'Americans needs cash now and the president wants to give cash now.'
'And I mean now - in the next two weeks,' Mnuchin added. Precise details weren't announced at the press conference.
Mnuchin said he was previewing the plan with Capitol Hill Republicans and would reveal more later, but he suggested the amount could be more than $1,000. There would also be some income cut-offs. 'You don't need to send people who make a million dollars a year checks,' he said.
