“We’re going big,” he said during a regular White House briefing.
Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said President Trump wanted to send checks “in next two weeks” as the administration scrambles to reduce the economic impact of the coronavirus crisis
Mnuchin is preparing a stimulus package with proposals for pay roll tax cuts and support for the airline industry.
He said officials wanted to ensure that workers had cash support as soon as possible but declined to offer details on how it work.
The idea of sending $1000 checks to workers has gained traction among some economists who see it as the fastest, most efficient way of helping those in need and keeping the economy running.
“I think we are going to do something that gets money to people as quickly as possible,” said Trump, adding that details would be finalized by the end of the day.
