Trump is pressuring Republicans to support granting incentive relief for Americans to confront the Corona virus
During the past two days, former President Donald Trump sparked controversy in the Senate through his account on the social networking site Twitter on Tuesday, “2000 dollars for our great people, not 600 dollars!” , Saying Republicans should agree to the payments.
And he continued to claim that the voting process would start with checks worth $ 2,000, and that the council would also begin an investigation into voter fraud in the presidential elections, which resulted in Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden winning.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday in a statement
“These are the three important topics that the president has linked together.” “This week, the Senate will begin a process to highlight these three priorities.”

On the other hand, this statement comes while the leader of the minority in the Senate, Chuck Schumer, said that he agreed to a procedure to send checks worth $ 2000, which are given to Americans to confront the Corona virus.
On the other hand, some critics believe that this step that Trump is taking is a return to the Washington establishment and at the same time enhancing his influence.
However, this position puts McConnell in a difficult position. As for the Democrats, this step is very important for the interests of Americans to solve their financial problems, especially in facing the challenges of the Corona virus.
Also, this step made some Republicans give up their refusal and agree to the relief package, which is worth 2000 dollars, and go to the Americans to confront the Corona virus.
And Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont said that he would prevent the Senate from overriding Trump’s veto on the annual defense law, which makes the right to vote not the right of McConnell alone, but a large group of Republicans must participate in voting on checks worth $ 2000.
