Le Pen is a champion for the policies that could bring about the death of the European Union, according to Brexit figurehead Nigel Farage and others.

Somewhere along the line, Democrats decided to make bankrupt municipalities the priority. Payroll support for the struggling airline industry is also a matter of contention in the negotiations.

A vote on a tentative stimulus package was planned in the House of Representatives on Wednesday, but it appears that plan has been postponed as Mnuchin and Pelosi continue to negotiate over the substance of the legislation. The size of the total package will most likely range between $2.2 trillion and $1.5 trillion, the proposals set forth by Democrats and Republicans respectively.
