President Donald Trump signed a $910 billion coronavirus recession relief package into law on Sunday night, enacting a much-sought round of bailout packages to small business and beleaguered Americans beset by the pandemic’s economic damage.

President Trump signed the package, which includes $600 relief checks directly to taxpayers, after urging Congress to pass $2000 checks to citizens and permanent residents instead. The President is calling upon Mitch McConnell and congressional leaders to pass further $2000 checks to relieve struggling Americans, while recognizing the necessity of $600 payments.

In a statement, the President Trump slams wasteful pork spending being appropriated for left-wing social engineering experiments in distant countries in the omnibus. President Trump is “redlining” some of the most wasteful facets of the omnibus spending bill, instructing Congress to revoke the funding of the wasteful programs in question in future legislative proceedings.

In a statement, President Trump also calls upon Congress to eliminate Big Tech’s monopoly protections under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act, and to investigate incidences of voter fraud that occurred in the November 3rd Presidential election.

Senate and House Republicans have objected to the idea of issuing $2000 coronavirus relief checks to American taxpayers, while some Democrats are more amenable to the proposal. It remains a possibility that President Trump will sign a standalone relief package paying Americans money without added-on pork before January 20th, when it appears all but certain that Joe Biden will be sworn in as President.
