Trump: ‘We Will Be Doing Another Stimulus Package’

During a portion of an interview with Scripps Networks released on Monday, President Trump committed that there will be a second round of economic stimulus, which he said is likely to be announced “over the next couple of weeks,” the president did not say how much the stimulus would be, but said he thinks the second round of stimulus will “be bipartisan.”

Scripps National Political Editor and Washington Correspondent Joe St. George asked, “I have a lot of viewers in Florida, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan who are still struggling economically, sir. They spent all of that first stimulus check. Are you going to get them a second stimulus check?”

Trump responded, “Yeah. We are. We are.”

Trump added, “We will be doing another stimulus package. It’ll be very good. It’ll be very generous.”

St. George then asked how much the stimulus would be.

Trump answered, “You’ll find out about it.”

St. George then asked, “When are you going to do it? When are you going to announce it?”

Trump responded, “I think over the next — I think it’s going to be bipartisan. I think it’s going to be over the next couple of weeks, probably.”
