On Friday afternoon, President Trump signed the historic COVID-19 relief bill, the CARES Act, passed through the U.S. House of Representatives earlier in the day, without stumbling blocks from Rep. Thomas Massie who was planning on stymieing the bill.
“The American people needed this rescue package they needed it quickly, and we delivered,” said Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
“We got hit by the invisible enemy and we got hit hard,” the president said during the signing. “I think we are going to have a tremendous rebound.”
President Trump wrote on Twitter, “ just signed the CARES Act, the single biggest economic relief package in American History – twice as large as any relief bill ever enacted. At $2.2 Trillion Dollars, this bill will deliver urgently-needed relief for our nation’s families, workers, and businesses.”
