President Trump blasts Nancy Pelosi, rejects Democratic offer for COVID-19 stimulus; 'Not going to produce a result': McConnell backs Trump ending COVID-19 talks, and related stories

Trump blasts Nancy Pelosi, rejects Democratic offer for COVID-19 stimulus:
President Trump on Tuesday rejected a coronavirus stimulus proposal from Democrats and accused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi of “not negotiating in good faith” as he called on congressional Republicans to drop the matter until after the election and instead focus on his nomination to the Supreme Court.
“Nancy Pelosi is asking for $2.4 Trillion Dollars to bailout poorly run, high crime, Democrat States, money that is in no way related to COVID-19. We made a very generous offer of $1.6 Trillion Dollars and, as usual, she is not negotiating in good faith,” Trump tweeted.
“I am rejecting their request, and looking to the future of our Country. I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business.”
Trump wrote that he “asked [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell not to delay, but to instead focus full time on approving my outstanding nominee to the United States Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett. Our Economy is doing very well.” --->READ MORE HERE
'Not going to produce a result': McConnell backs Trump ending COVID-19 talks:
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday he supports President Trump’s move to end coronavirus aid talks with Democrats.
The Kentucky Republican told Capitol Hill reporters he agreed with the decision, which followed weeks of fruitless talks between Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin.
“I think his view was that they were not going to produce a result and that we needed to concentrate on what’s achievable,” McConnell said.
Trump tweeted earlier Tuesday he is calling off the talks after Democrats rejected a $1.6 trillion offer from Mnuchin.
Democrats are seeking a package worth $2.4 trillion and are refusing to back a provision to provide lawsuit liability protections for schools, businesses, and healthcare facilities that McConnell said must be included in any package he brings to the Senate floor.
