President Donald Trump shot down the massive new Democratic coronavirus relief package ahead of a planned House vote Friday. “DOA. Dead on arrival. Of course, Nancy Pelosi knows that,” he told reporters Wednesday at the White House. The proposal would be the largest stimulus package yet and includes more direct payments to Americans beyond the $1200 stimulus checks approved earlier this year. The bill also includes money for state and local governments, unemployment, student loan forgiveness, rent and mortgage assistance, hospitals, and coronavirus testing. A vote on the bill is expected on Friday.
