President Donald Trump just struck House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer were it hurts the most with his new executive order on coronavirus relief package which was met with harsh backlash from angry, Trump-Hating Democratic leaders.
Trump signed four executive actions on Saturday in which he bypassed Congress for what he saw as a bold effort to extend relief for Americans suffering under the COVID-19 pandemic, after Congress was unable to reach a deal on an extension or reinvention of the CARES Act. Trump’s measures addressed unemployment assistance, an eviction moratorium, student loan relief, and the deferment of payroll taxes.

During an interview on Sunday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi had a meltdown on CNN, saying that the order was “absurdly unconstitutional.”
“First of all, he is saying states have the money. No, they don’t,” Pelosi claimed. “They have expenses from the coronavirus. They have lost revenue. Because of that, they are firing health care workers, first responders, teachers, and the rest, sanitation, transportation because they don’t have the money. Second of all, everything is left out — our assistance to the schools, feeding the hungry, helping people who are going to be evicted. The president’s moratorium, he just did a study to look at a moratorium. Something’s wrong. Either the president doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Clearly, his aides don’t know what he is talking about, or something’s very wrong here about meeting the needs of the American people at this time.”
Schumer said, “We have this huge crisis, the largest economic crisis since the depression, the greatest health crisis since the pandemic. Unfortunately, the president’s executive orders described in one word could describe paltry. The event at the country club is what Trump does, a big show but it doesn’t do anything, as the American people look at these executive orders they don’t come close to doing the job. One, what they proposed and second what’s left out. What’s proposed. On the unemployment benefit, first, the $600 a week has been very successful, it’s kept millions of people out of poverty, pumped more money into the economy, consumer spending is probably the best thing in the economy.”
