Now he's really pissed off! Complete surprise in the US

Donald Trump calls on Congress to change the provisions of the aid package for the Americans. The outgoing president is threatening to otherwise veto the bill, which so far has had his full support. His appeal surprised MPs from both major parties.

Donald Trump called on Congress to change the bailout package for the Americans. The outgoing president was due to sign an aid package on Monday. Instead, he posted a video on Twitter calling the law "a disgrace and a waste".

It's called the covid relief act, and it has nothing to do with Covid, thunders Donald Trump.

Trump threatens a veto. The stake is $ 900 billion

The entire package is $ 900 billion. Roughly half of this amount is to be allocated to a one-time benefit of $ 600 for most Americans, but Donald Trump said the amount should be $ 2,000. dollars.

The bill provides for $ 85.5 million for aid to Cambodia, $ 134 million for Burma, $ 1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian army that will buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment, $ 25 million for programs on democracy and gender equality in Pakistan, $ 505 million to Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama, says Trump.

The outgoing president was also outraged by other expenses. He asked why the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts was to receive $ 40 million since it is currently closed. Another waste for him is the billion dollars allocated to helping museums and art galleries in the capital.

I am asking Congress to ditch the waste immediately, get rid of unnecessary elements in this package, and send me the relevant bill. Otherwise, the next administration will have to prepare an aid package, Trump announced.

The threat of veto took Congressmen by surprise. Republicans and Democrats have been negotiating the provisions of the bills since July. federal extension of unemployment benefits, support for landlords and home, the prohibition of unexpected bills for medical services.

But it's not just Trump who has reservations about the package. Journalists and political commentators believe the bailout law includes "gifts" for lobbyists, such as $ 110 billion in tax breaks for sectors such as the alcohol industry.

Joe Biden says the package is just an "advance" and will put pressure on Congress for another bailout bill to be passed soon. Democrat Nancy Pelosi, who is usually a staunch opponent of Donald Trump, backed his call to increase the American bailout to $ 2,000. dollars - informs the BBC.
