Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer Hold a Press Conference | LIVE | NowThis

STILL NO DEAL FOR NEXT ROUND OF COVID-19 RELIEF: Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer hold a press conference to discuss the ongoing negotiations for the next round of coronavirus relief. In a statement released earlier today, the Democratic leaders said that ‘millions of Americans are still hurting and yet, despite this reality, President Trump and Republicans appear ready to walk away from the negotiating table to do unworkable, weak and narrow executive orders that barely scratch the surface of what is needed to defeat the virus and help struggling Americans.’ Yesterday, Speaker Pelosi and Sen. Schumer met with Treasury Sec. Steven Mnuchin and WH Chief of Staff Mark Meadows for the 10th time. Both sides reported some progress, but a deal is still out of sight, despite Democrats and the White House wanting a deal by the end of this week before members of Congress leave Capitol Hill. The House passed the $3 trillion HEROES Act almost three months ago, which extends the additional $600 per week in unemployment benefits to those in need until January 2021, but Sen. Mitch McConnell never brought it to the Senate floor. Upon leaving the White House last night, Pelosi told reporters that, ‘It’s not about who gets more what in the halls of Congress. It’s about what it translates into the lives of the American people.’
