US President Donald Trump on Tuesday rejected a non-partisan Covid stimulus package worth $ 900 billion, calling it “a shame” and calling on lawmakers to more than triple payments to Americans.
Although he didn’t specifically say that he would not sign the bill, which was largely passed in both houses of Congress on Monday, Trump made it clear that he would not accept the legislation.
“It really is a shame,” he said in a video message posted on Twitter.

“I urge Congress to change this bill and increase the ridiculously low $ 600 to $ 2,000 or $ 4,000 for a couple. I also urge Congress to get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary elements of this legislation immediately and just send me a suitable invoice. “
