Trump kills stimulus talks, tweets no deal until ‘after I win’ election
In a series of tweets, president Trump revealed from a conservation earlier in the day that he instructed GOP congressional leaders to cease any bipartisan talks until after Nov. 3 and to instead focus on confirming his new Supreme Court nominee.
“I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” Trump wrote. “I have asked [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell not to delay, but to instead focus full time on approving my outstanding nominee to the United States Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett.”
