Graham: Trump “more determined than ever” to increase stimulus checks to $2000

Christmas day, Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted “After spending some time with President
@realDonaldTrump today, I am convinced he is more determined than ever to increase stimulus payments to $2000 per person and challenge Section 230 big tech liability protection.”

He added “Both are reasonable demands, and I hope Congress is listening. The biggest winner would be the American people.”

On the same day, Trump tweeted “Made many calls and had meetings at Trump International in Palm Beach, Florida.”

He asked “Why would politicians not want to give people $2000, rather than only $600? It wasn’t their fault, it was China. Give our people the money!”

 

Republican Senator Roy Blunt (R-MO) has warned he believes that Trump’s demand for $2k checks for Americans instead of $600 won’t pass the Senate and urged him to sign the package as is.

Blunt said  “it took us a long time to get to where we are. I think reopening that bill would be a mistake.”

He added “the best way out of this is for the president to sign the bill, and I still hope that’s what he decides.”
