U.S. President Donald Trump signed the budget for the 2021 fiscal year in the sum of $2.3 trillion. The budget includes the package of measures for support of the economy in terms of the pandemic in the sum of $900 billion as CNN reported.
It is reported that Trump signed the mass bill on support during the Covid-19 pandemic and state financing in the sum of $2.3 trillion on Sunday evening, preventing the government shutdown that could start on Tuesday.
Representative of the White House Judd Deere reported about the signing.
“President Donald Trump has signed H.R. 133, an Act making consolidated appropriations for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2021, providing coronavirus emergency response and relief, and for other purposes,” he reported.
Deere noted that the president signed the bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more.
“As President, I have told Congress that I want far less wasteful spending and more money going to the American people in the form of $2,000 checks per adult and $600 per child,” Trump stated as the White House reported.
Earlier, Donald Trump vetoed a bipartisan defense policy bill, which caused a lot of controversy among both Republicans and Democrats. According to the President himself, he stands against liability protections for social media companies that are unrelated to national security, and he also does not want to rename military bases that are named for generals who fought for the pro-slavery Confederacy during the Civil War (1861-1865).
