BREAKING: Nancy Pelosi Has Shock Public Meltdown – She’s FURIOUS

Must Read

(Breitbart) – Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called President Donald Trump’s executive orders addressing issued Saturday the economic crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic “absurdly unconstitutional.”

Pelosi said, “First of all, he is saying states have the money. No, they don’t. They have expenses from the coronavirus. They have lost revenue. Because of that, they are firing health care workers, first responders, teachers, and the rest, sanitation, transportation because they don’t have the money. Second of all, everything is left out — our assistance to the schools, feeding the hungry, helping people who are going to be evicted. The president’s moratorium, he just did a study to look at a moratorium. Something’s wrong. Either the president doesn’t know what he’s talking about. Clearly, his aides don’t know what he is talking about, or something’s very wrong here about meeting the needs of the American people at this time.”

She added, “The fact is, is that whether they’re legal or not takes time to figure out. I associate my remarks with what the senator who says, they’re unconstitutional slop. Right now, we want to address the needs of the American people. As my constitutional advisers tell me, they’re absurdly unconstitutional. Gut right now our focus —and that’s a parallel thing—right now the focus, the priority, has to be on, again, meeting the needs of the American people sufficiently allocating resources to send children to school, not threatening schools that if they don’t have actual attendance, they won’t get the federal dollars.”

Flashback: Donald Trump Signs Executive Order: Payroll Tax Holiday, Enhanced Unemployment Checks

President Donald Trump signed an executive order for a payroll tax holiday at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey, on Saturday.

“The very important thing is that people want it, and the people need it, actually,” Trump said, noting that Republicans and Democrats in Congress could not reach a deal.

The president said that the payroll tax holiday would apply to Americans earning less than $100,000 a year.

“If I am victorious on November 3, I plan to forgive these taxes and make permanent cuts to the payroll tax,” he said.

Trump added that he might even “terminate” the tax or make permanent changes. A group of supporters joined the president at his press conference announcing the news and cheered as the president signed the orders.

“Biden probably won’t be doing that. You’ll have to ask him. I don’t think he knows what he’s doing,” he said, as his supporters chuckled.

The president also said he would provide a federal unemployment enhancement of $400 per week but that states would pay for 25 percent of the cost. He also signed an extension of the moratorium on evictions and deferred student loan payments.

Trump said he had to act on his own after negotiations with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ground to a halt.

“The Democrats have obstructed people from getting desperately needed help,” Trump said.

The president said he would find ways to use existing funds already passed by Congress for coronavirus relief to help Americans fight the virus and the economic struggles from the lockdowns.

“We have the money to do a lot of things, money that was unspent, and we would do a lot of things with the money that was unspent,” he said.
