Where COVID-19 stimulus talks stand after new Trump offer

Lawmakers’ on-again, off-again stimulus talks were revived over the weekend after President Donald Trump’s administration put forth a $1.8 trillion offer — but a deal on another coronavirus relief package remains in limbo.

The president last week called off negotiations and shifted the focus to confirming his Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett, a move heavily criticized by Democrats in Congress.

“I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” Trump tweeted Oct. 6.

The White House pivoted on its stance days later by offering its costliest plan yet.

Its $1.8 trillion proposal includes another round of $1,200 stimulus checks like those sent to Americans under the CARES Act in the spring and a $400 weekly boost to unemployment benefits among other things, according to NBC News.

Second stimulus checks: Where we stand after a chaotic week in Washington | WGN Radio 720

WASHINGTON (NEXSTAR) — The first piece of business President Donald Trump tweeted about following his hospitalization for coronavirus was stimulus relief for Americans. The message from Trump underscores the political importance of reaching a bipartisan deal and delivering a new round of direct payments to most Americans.

“Our great USA wants and needs stimulus,” tweeted Trump. “Work together and get it done.”

That’s exactly what House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin have tried to do over the last week. The pair had regular meetings that lasted more than an hour, in some cases.

On Sunday morning, Pelosi told CBS’ Face the Nation that she and Mnuchin are “making progress.”

The good news: Negotiators are closer to a deal than they’ve been on months.

The bad news: They’re still a long way off.

Turns Out President Business Deals Couldn’t Manage a Lemonade Stand

No one should need to see Donald Trump’s tax returns to know he’s a Businessman in the way Clark Stanley was a Businessman. We have known for some time that Trump initially made his money through a multigenerational tax avoidance scheme that at some points veered into outright fraud. We have known that many of his businesses—six at least—have crashed into bankruptcy, including multiple casinos(!), and he avoided personal bankruptcy by taking his failing business public—the stock ticker was his initials—and leaving investors with the bill. Throughout much of the 1990s, he was not paying taxes because of nearly $1 billion in business losses he incurred during that time, which canceled out any income earned. When he did get some real income again, it was primarily by playing the part of a Businessman on television—complete with a stage-set Boardroom that NBC

From China’s stand to Walmart’s wish list: A Climate Week news cheat sheet

As with virtually all gatherings of the climate community during the COVID age, this year’s Climate Week was convened as an online event — one hosted from more than 20 countries across myriad time zones rather than its usual host city of New York. 

Instead of running between Manhattan locations, attendees platform-hopped among more than 450 presentations, panels, screenings and other events, including those hosted by the World Economic Forum and the United Nations, while iconic structures such as the Empire State Building turned their lights green to recognize the urgency of the climate crisis.

As is their wont, many companies used the occasion to proclaim updated commitments — the buzzword du la semaine was “net-zero” with Walmart declaring a zero-emissions target by 2040 along with a big clean fleet promise and a pledge to “protect, manage or restore” at least 50 million acres of land and 1 million square

She lost her business due to coronavirus. Now she’s supporting her four children by running their lemonade stand

Erin Bailey owned and ran a successful lawn care business in Palm Springs. But as the pandemic spread, her list of clients quickly dwindled — and now she has none.

“I was so excited to finally have my own business and it was going so well, then all of a sudden everything just stopped. I was so happy and proud, and now I feel like a failure,” Bailey, a single mom to four children, told CNN.

“It’s always been just me, looking for help that wasn’t coming,” she added, while fighting back tears. “It got so hopeless. It just feels like you’re walking around in the dark and bumping into everything. You just feel so alone, like everyone else is OK but you’re the only one that’s not.”

Bailey said the family receives government help in the form of food stamps, but they don’t last long enough. About 27 million
