Chuck Schumer Made Sure Trump Businesses Couldn’t Receive Money From The Gov. $2 Trillion Coronavirus Bailout Fund



Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer on Tuesday night secured an agreement in the $2 trillion federal coronavirus stimulus package that would bar businesses owned by President Donald Trump and his family from receiving money from the fund.

Under the new rule, businesses owned by members of Congress, Vice President Mike Pence, and top members of the executive branch would also be excluded from the bailout, according to Business Insider.

Trump owns a string of high-end hotels and golf resorts, several of which have been shuttered during the pandemic.

On Sunday, the president indicated that he had not ruled out congressional aid for the Trump Organization should the bailout funds become available.

Schumer’s proviso also includes businesses owned by the children or spouses of top officials and lawmakers, CNN’s Manu Raju tweeted.

The aid package, agreed on by the White House and the Senate early Wednesday, would provide assistance to Americans and businesses struggling during a sharp economic downturn.

If You Thought Kamala Harris Was Tough On Brett Kavanaugh, Just Wait Until She Debates Mike Pence



Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden on Tuesday selected Senator Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) as his running mate. Following the news of Biden’s selection, MSNBC anchor Nicolle Wallace called into her network while on vacation to point out that Harris will mop the floor with Vice President Mike Pence during debates.

“The other piece of reporting I’ve picked up in the past week was from the Trump team, that from their viewpoint, because Donald Trump has no capacity to understand that this is the selection of a person to run the government with the president, he only saw this in terms of casting for the night of primetime coverage that is the vice presidential debate, and this was the pick that scared them the most,” Wallace told MSNBC’s Brian Williams.

“They thought she would more than go toe-to-toe with [Mike] Pence, they thought she could chew him up and spit him out and pointed to her cross-examination of one Bill Barr,” she explained.

“I don’t know that there’s a better debater or questioner on the political field right now,” Wallace said. Her skill-set is unmatched in terms much being able to articulate an argument, to patiently wait to make her point and look at the argument that the democratic ticket has to make.”
