Pres Trump Kicks COVID Bill Back To Congress; Demands $2,000 Stimulus, Shreds Lawmakers Over Mountain Of Pork; Billions in Foreign Aid, Pet Projects Stuffed Into COVID Relief Bill, and other C-Virus Updates

Trump Kicks COVID Bill Back To Congress; Demands $2,000 Stimulus, Shreds Lawmakers Over Mountain Of Pork:
President Trump appeared to threaten to veto the COVID-19 stimulus package that Congress passed almost 24 hours earlier, telling lawmakers to boost checks for Americans to $2,000 as well as "get rid of wasteful and unnecessary items" in the spending bill
Trump said "throughout the summer, Democrats cruelly blocked COVID relief legislation in an effort to advance their extreme left wing agenda and influence the election..." 
"it's taken forever" to get a package and the bill passed "is much different than anticipated." 
"It really is a disgrace," he added.
Then reeled off a list of disgusting 'pork' (read the details here) that has been piled into this record-breaking 5,593 page bill. --->READ MORE HERE
Billions in foreign aid, pet projects stuffed into COVID relief bill:
Uncle Sam is about to play Santa for America — and the world.
Congress passed a $2.3 trillion COVID-19 relief and government funding bill that gives just $600 to most Americans struggling during the COVID-19 pandemic — while doling out gifts to foreign countries and powerful lawmakers.
In addition to the slim stimulus cash payout, the bill contains a $300 weekly unemployment supplement, $284 billion in loans to small businesses and money for transit systems and entertainment venues hard hit by the virus.
The COVID-19 legislation — which was combined with the nation’s regular annual spending bill — also contains more pork than a Christmas ham.
The legislation adds not one but two National Mall museums, $10 million for “gender programs” in Pakistan and $2.5 million for “internet freedom.”
The 5,593-page package wasn’t available until around 2 p.m. Monday before it passed in the House around 9 p.m. and in the Senate before midnight. President Trump is expected to sign the bill. --->LOTS MORE HERE
