Trump signs $900 billion COVID relief bill, averting government shutdown after midnight

Before the signed the bill, the President hinted Sunday evening that there had been a development. He tweeted that there was “Good news on Covid Relief Bill. Information to follow!”

Miami, dimanche 27 décembre 2020 ((– President Trump signed a bill to extend unemployment benefits and avert a government shutdown, the White House said in an emailed statement Sunday evening.

While Trump signed the current bill providing for $600 checks for most Americans hours before a midnight government shutdown deadline, he will continue his push to bring that amount to $2,000, according to two sources familiar with the planning.


Trump’s delay in signing the $900 billion coronavirus relief bill and $1.4 trillion government funding measure caused unemployment benefits for millions of Americans to lapse overnight.

A bipartisan group of lawmakers, angered over the delay, urged Trump earlier on Sunday to sign the measure, saying « too many people » depended on it.
