After a meeting with treasury secretary Steven Mnuchin, House speaker Nancy Pelosi said the chamber would move forward with a vote on Democrats’ trimmed-down coronavirus relief bill tonight.
“Today, Secretary Mnuchin and I had an extensive conversation and we found areas where we are seeking further clarification. Our conversations will continue,” the Democratic speaker said.
“We will be proceeding with our vote tonight on the updated Heroes Act in order to formalize our proffer to Republicans in the negotiations to address the health and economic catastrophe in our country.”
Mnuchin similarly told a Capitol Hill reporter that he and Pelosi had “made a lot of progress in a lot of areas.”
“We made a lot of progress over the last few days,” Mnuchin said. “We still don’t have an agreement, but we have more work to do, and we’re going to see where we end up.”
The $2.2 trillion relief package will likely pass the Democratic-controlled House tonight, but the bill faces a very uncertain future in the Republican-controlled Senate.
When a reporter asked Trump about his comments on the Proud Boys last night, the president asked for a “definition” of the extremist far-right group.
“I don’t know who the Proud Boys are. I mean, you’ll have to give me a definition because I really don’t know who they are,” Trump said.
“I can only say they have to stand down, let law enforcement do their work.”
But the extremist group has consistently been in the news since last night’s debate, so it seems unlikely the president is not aware of who the Proud Boys are.
The claim of ignorance was reminiscent of Trump’s comments about infamous white supremacist David Duke during the 2016 campaign.
After Duke endorsed Trump’s campaign, the then-presidential candidate was asked to condemn the white supremacist.
Instead, Trump told CNN host Jake Tapper, “Well, just so you understand, I don’t know anything about David Duke. Okay? I don’t know anything about what you’re even talking about with white supremacy or white supremacists. So, I don’t know.”
