Trump has stood up

To the editor:

Since The Associated Press and Main Stream Media regurgitate lies and have become pathological, along with making snide remarks about President Trump provided by the Democratic machine and tech companies, here is information of what our representatives in Congress have done during these past 10 months regarding monies for COVID-19:

Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act 2020. The Families First Coronavirus Response 2020. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, or the C.A.R.E.S. Act — the total for these three bills is $2.2 trillion. A total of $1.6 trillion was given in loans, and committed or disbursed — $1.6 trillion. This money was a federal loan through the Federal Reserve, Treasury and Small Business Administration, according to CovidMoneyTracker.Org.)

Also were the Student Veteran Coronavirus Response Act of 2020, the Emergency Aid For Returning Americans Affected by Coronavirus Act and the Safeguarding America’s First Responders Act of 2020. The cost for these last three public laws was unknown to the Congressional Budget Office as of Dec. 30. All of these bills were signed into law by President Trump between March 6 and Aug. 14.

On Dec. 4 came the Impact Aid Coronavirus Relief Act, with a cost unknown to the Congressional Budget Office as of Dec. 30.

On Dec. 22, the Pandemic Relief Bill, which consisted of more than 1,000 pages, was introduced, and within five or six hours it was voted on in both the House and Senate. It passed in both chambers. In this bill was allotted $600 per person. On Dec. 23, Trump, from the White House, studied a litany of more being appropriated to other countries and said it was a disgrace that nothing is for the people hurt by the China virus. He wanted $2,000 for each American.

Following Trump’s comments, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., agreed with the president about the $2,000. On Dec. 28, the bill was signed by the president at a cost of $900 billion for COVID relief and $1.4 trillion to fund the government. On Dec. 29, the $2,000 bill passed the House, but the Senate fought it and the president wanted a stand-alone bill.

We have phony, lying, self- promoting representatives. They are the ones who crafted the bill that gives $600, or $1.64 a day, for a year to Americans — and illegals. All the other bills were crafted by them also. There is no reason that an American business should have to get a loan when Congress gives to other countries our tax dollars with no strings attached.

It took President Trump to show the American people who they really are.
