Donald Trump Is Ending Coronavirus Relief Talks Until After the Election

President Donald Trump is ending negotiations regarding COVID-19 relief efforts.

The 74-year-old President of the United States called “an abrupt end to negotiations with Democrats over additional COVID-19 relief, delaying action until after the election despite ominous warnings from his own Federal Reserve chairman about the deteriorating conditions in the economy,” AP reported Tuesday (October 6).

“I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” Trump also tweeted.

Former Vice President Joe Biden slammed the decision in a statement.

“Make no mistake: if you are out of work, if your business is closed, if your child’s school is shut down, if you are seeing layoffs in your community, Donald Trump decided today that none of that — none of it — matters to him,” he said.

Trump is currently battling coronavirus, and has gone viral for his apparent labored breathing upon returning to the White House.
