Coronavirus: Trump bypasses Congress, signs executive orders on COVID-19 aid

U.S. President Donald Trump signed several executive orders on Saturday, moving to bypass Congress as he claimed authority to defer payroll taxes and extend an expired unemployment benefit after negotiations with lawmakers on the latest stimulus package collapsed.

Jennifer Johnson explains that the move may prompt Democrats to take the Trump administration to court.

    So if you get a virus and your home sick who pays your wages when your home? Here the government is giving people money while they are not working. And people want more and they are blaming trump? Because chyna didn’t give anyone a heads up. And that’s who’s fault and why. ??

    If the Democrats sue him then we know that they are the problem from the get-go. But we know that they won’t do that because they’ll lose a lot of votes lmao. Trump got Pelosi real good over here.

    What I like about Trump is a man of Action. He makes things happen when Congress doesn’t know day it is.

    President had no choice. The Dems are acting like f*$&#@g idiots. I am so disgusted with Democrats. Pelosi, Schumer, and their cling-ons are poor excuses for human beings.

    For anyone still planning on voting Democrat..Did you hear Pelosi state that they will file a lawsuit against Trump's executive order to send Covid money now?? She , and the Democrats, would prefer to wait endlessly to help hurting Americans! They DO NOT care one bit about you or any American

    How is $400 going to help Americans ,when their 3-4 months in the rent hole and other bills that are late ,they still own rent and other bills so within months they will still get evicted, this is not fixing anything,so now more months of late rent added to their bill ,this only hurts the poor Americans, if an eviction goes onto your credit report that person can never get the eviction removed and they can never get a decent place to live or buy that home and will always have to pay a super high deposit for a crappy place to live,this is what lies ahead for millions of Americans.the $1200 would have been hope money to help Americans get out of the hole millions are in..this is their tax money the American people's money..in six months a bigger problem is in wait.

    The Americans are fed up. The TV sees the American demonstrations expressing their opinions, the masses are bleeding, there are tanks on the scene, and the shock is escalated, but why is it causing China and Hong Kong every day? We Asians don’t understand

    The U.S. is TESTING at a rate of at least Five times any other country. Since Covid-19 is a slightly more infectious form of the flu then it makes sense that they would have more "cases" identified in the population. At a certain point most people will get it but won't DIE from it. See how that works?

    Noticed how they debate who gets what and how much but never how they will ever pay for it. The exorbitant privilege of the mighty $USD.
