President Trump Signs $2 Trillion Coronavirus Bill into Law, Snubs Pelosi

President Donald Trump did not invite House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to the White House for the signing of the “phase 3” coronavirus economic relief legislation.
The Senate passed the $2.2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act on Wednesday unanimously in 96-0 vote.
The House also passed the legislation Friday in a voice vote.
“I want to thank Democrats and Republicans for coming together, setting aside their differences, and putting America first,” Trump said before signing the bill on Friday afternoon.
“We got hit by the invisible enemy and we got hit hard,” he added. “I think we are going to have a tremendous rebound.”
“I’ve never signed anything with a ‘T’ on it. I don’t know if I can handle this one Mitch,” Trump joked, as he turned to Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, who was standing behind him.
Vice President Mike Pence, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, and other Republican lawmakers and members of Trump’s Cabinet were also on hand.
Trump gave the pen he signed the bill with to McConnell.
Pelosi’s spokesperson, Drew Hammill, told NBC News the speaker was not invited to the ceremony.
