President Donald Trump signed the Senate Democratic’s pork-filled $900 billion coronavirus relief package into law on Sunday night.
The package includes $600 stimulus checks for qualified Americans and some non-citizens. Trump issued a statement afterward saying he signed the pork-filled package to restart unemployment benefits and a federal ban on evictions, as well as to ward off a government shutdown.
He urged Congress to approve his demand for $2000 stimulus checks to struggling Americans.
Trump also called on Congress to eliminate Big Tech’s protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act and to investigate incidents of voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
The Democrats plan to vote on a separate, standalone bill to boost stimulus checks to $2000 on Monday, Dec. 28 at 3 p.m.
Senate and House Republicans have rejected a previous proposal to increase the checks to $2000.
