Presidential candidates to take questions in simultaneous appearances, with Trump on NBC and Biden on ABC
During tonight’s town halls, Trump and Biden will likely both be asked about the coronavirus relief negotiations, which have hit yet another roadblock.
House speaker Nancy Pelosi and treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin have been trying to reach an agreement on a relief package in recent days, and the two had another conversation today.
The Speaker and Secretary Mnuchin spoke at 3:30 p.m. today for 1 hr, 22 mins. The Secretary stated he would accept Democrats’ language for a national strategic testing plan with “minor” edits & that language would be shared tomorrow. The Speaker looks forward to reviewing. (1/4)
The Speaker also raised Leader McConnell’s comments today about not being willing to put a comprehensive package on the Senate floor. The Secretary indicated that the President would weigh in with Leader McConnell should an agreement be reached. (3/4)
