President Donald Trump is pointing fingers at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi as well as the congressional Democrats that they have deflected a third coronavirus stimulus bill with immigration and environmental provisions, The Hill reported.
“Republicans had a deal until Nancy Pelosi rode into town from her extended vacation,” Trump tweeted late Monday.
“The Democrats want the Virus to win? They are asking for things that have nothing to do with our great workers or companies,” Trump added. “They want Open Borders & Green New Deal. Republicans shouldn’t agree!”
Pelosi on Monday offered a preview of House Democrats’ sweeping economic proposal. The package includes a host of provisions that have little chance of making it into the final package, including tax credits to promote green energy and mandatory emissions reductions for the airlines set to receive federal help.
“This is not about the ridiculous Green New Deal. It is about putting our great workers and companies BACK TO WORK!” Trump added in a follow-up tweet.
