President Trump and Coronavirus Task Force provide update, Tuesday, April 21 | USA TODAY 1


The Senate reached a deal on a $484 billion stimulus package Tuesday afternoon, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo met with President Donald Trump at the White House after some fiery exchanges over their respective handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

The stimulus deal senators agreed to, much of it aimed at boosting small businesses, will supplement the $2 trillion legislation passed last month. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hailed it as a "bipartisan agreement."
Cuomo has repeatedly chastised the president for asking governors to lead the struggle against the outbreak without enough federal resources. Trump responded this week by tweeting the governor should "spend more time 'doing' and less time 'complaining.' "

    It’s been a month. Why aren’t citizens getting a second stimulus check. Our bills don’t just happen once every 2 months.

    • @Bil Ska that you suck at life?? i

    • The whole world is going through this economic drought. Here we are still fighting each other. Let’s set aside our political views for now. Team up and invest on finding a cure!! Not a vaccine that was manufactured in China please!!

  2. I still haven’t received the stimulus check wtheck

  3. The question and answer period of this update should frighten every American. Notice how the false narrative is presumed to truth by everyone in that room. Then that false narrative is projected upon the entire country. It takes a sharp ear to notice this manipulation that leads to delusion. Americans need to stop hitting the snooze button and wake up!

    Ritual press conferences that are designed to pull wool over the populations eyes. Some how the world is driven by ignorant and Naive people who splurt out stats and figures that are always wrong. The media then pump out stats and figures and as the public are non the wiser.we don’t question any of these so called stats that then influence and govern our lives. All I’m saying is no way people in these press conferences have my best interest at heart. lol . WAKE UP and change the conversation

    Will PPE shipments that hospitals have already paid for continue to be intercepted by the white house and rerouted to friendly governors? Does the President agree that this practice amounts to genocide by attrition?
