NFU rebukes Trump for calling off pandemic relief talks
The National Farmers Union says President Trump’s decision Tuesday to end coronavirus stimulus talks must be reversed. Stocks dropped sharply after the announcement.
Several hours after the president said the White House was pulling out of talks – he tweeted that he would support individual bills to help certain segments of the economy, including small business.
NFU President Rob Larew, after the first announcement, issued a statement saying millions of Americans of all stripes are suffering. He said “family owned farms and businesses, rural hospitals, the postal service and other critical services and infrastructure are fighting just to stay afloat.”
Trump also tweeted last night he would sign a bill to provide $12-hundred-dollar stimulus checks to Americans.
Larew says it’s not a partisan issue, that Americans need help and they need it now.
