Coronavirus stimulus: President Trump urges GOP to ‘go for the much higher numbers,’ Democrats agree

Democrats agreed with his first point.

“Go for the much higher numbers,” President Donald Trump said in a tweet on Wednesday. “Republicans, it all comes back to the USA anyway (one way or another!).”
