We’ve had it, and we’re going to save American jobs and provide relief to the American workers.
As a countermeasure to Democrats blocking a new middle-class economic relief package, President Trump has used his emergency authority and issued four executive actions designed to provide relief to Americans struggling as results of COVID-19 pandemic.
NOTE: Democrats are expected to sue the Administration in an attempt to overturn the relief issued by the POTUS.
President’s executive order and three memorandums cover the following:
- An extension of the federal unemployment supplement of $400 per week. (READ IT HERE)
- A payroll tax holiday through the end of this year for Americans with income under $100,000 (READ IT HERE)
- An Extention of student loan relief through the end of the year (READ IT HERE)
- A renewal of the eviction moratorium to keep struggling Americans in their homes (READ IT HERE)
Another round of twelve hundred dollars stimulus checks is not included in Trump’s executive orders. It’s unclear if he plans to take care of it later on with another executive order or will let Congress deal with it.

At the news conference Pres. Trump said that:
One-third of their [Democrats’] bill, the HEROES Act, is spending completely unrelated money to the virus. Here are just a few of the policies in their extreme left bill.
And then dropped a couple of examples:
They want measures designed to increase voter fraud, which is banning voter id in all states and banning requirements for signature verification in federal elections.
They want illegal aliens to be able to vote. Illegals vote for Democrats.
Democrats are actively blocking […] support for k-12 schools to help them safely open.
They want schools closed because it prevents parents from going back to work. Parents have to watch after kids.
Additional funding for the paycheck protection program to help millions of workers on the payroll.
They don’t want people to work. They want them in unemployment lines. The more people work, the better the economy is, and a good economy is bad for Democrats.
