US President Signs corona virus relief order after talks with Congress collapse

Vastavam web: US President Donald trump signed executive orders extending economic help to Americans hit by the coronavirus crisis on saturday. Trump Signed this order after opposition Democrats failed to agree on a new stimulus package. Trump said, we did this to save American jobs and provide relief to American workers. With double digit unemployment, massive disruption to businesses from social distancing rules, and stubbornly high rates of coronavirus infection, many Americans have been relying on relief measures approved earlier by Congress, but which mostly expired in July.

Trump said his decision to circumvent Congress with executive orders would mean relief money getting “rapidly distributed.” One order aims to get $400 a week added to unemployment benefits, while two others offer some protection from evictions and relief for student loans.
