Donald Trump says he will extend unemployment benefits and coronavirus aid until the end of the year
President Donald Trump said he will use an executive order to extend unemployment benefits until the end of the year. The president said he would also consider continuing other coronavirus aid if no deal can be reached with Democrats on a new spending bill. Congress is locked in a bipartisan row over another stimulus bill and a package of measures to help the American economy which has been ransacked by the Covid-19 outbreak. A last-ditch effort by Democrats to revive talks collapsed on Friday, making it increasingly likely that Washington gridlock will mean more hardship for millions of people who are losing enhanced jobless benefits. The White House had rejected an offer by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to curb Democratic demands by about $1 trillion but Mr Trump said he could issue executive orders if he is unable to reach a broad agreement with Congress. The president told reporters on Friday that he would be working over the next couple of weeks on an executive order to require health insurers to cover pre-existing conditions and that his administration is "talking about" deferring the payroll tax, as well as continuing a moratorium on evictions. Mr Trump also said he was considering deferring student loan payments until the end of the year.
