Will anyone give President Trump credit for agreeing to this? And maybe stop saying he always puts himself above everything else?
I’m sure Chuck Schumer thinks he scored a major coup with this one.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The bipartisan pandemic relief package will ban loans and aid from going to hotels and other properties owned by President Trump.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said Wednesday that he had secured a provision in the final $2 trillion economic relief agreement ensuring that Trump and others in the federal government don’t personally benefit from the provisions meant to rescue industries hammered by the pandemic. The children, spouses, and in-laws of such officials are also included in the prohibition.
The measure would provide $500 billion in aid to big industries such as airlines and hotels.
