USA – Mnuchin offers $916bn COVID-19 relief plan to US Congress (Al Jazeera)

United States Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin presented a $916bn coronavirus relief proposal to House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday evening in the White House’s first bid since the election to break a deadlock in the US Congress.

Acting on behalf of President Donald Trump, Secretary Mnuchin said his proposal is slightly larger than a $908bn bipartisan plan offered by a group of Republican and Democratic senators last week.
