REPORT: Trump wants THIS to appear on economic relief checks, WSJ claims
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by WSJ.com:
Mr. Trump has told people he wants his signature to appear on the direct payment checks that will go out to many Americans in the coming weeks, according to an administration official. The White House didn’t comment.
Normally, a civil servant—the disbursing officer for the payment center—would sign federal checks, said Don Hammond, a former senior Treasury Department official.
The article goes on to state the following:
Lawmakers are already discussing what could be needed in a subsequent economic-relief package—which would be the fourth to address the health crisis. Some members say states need more money. Mrs. Pelosi has said she wants to see additional worker-safety protections, along with access to free health care for those who become sick from the virus.
Trump signed a $2 trillion stimulus package into law on Friday, the largest such package in U.S. history.
The CARES Act will provide financial aid to Americans impacted by the coronavirus pandemic with direct payments and expanded unemployment insurance.
The package also helps businesses through loans and grants.
Trump wanting his signature on every 1.2k check is such a brilliant move.
(1) He gets the credit he deserves for getting this done.
(2) The Media can’t distrort messaging. The American people will know the truth. His signature is literally on the check.
