President Donald Trump listed Thursday three specific items he wants Congress to work into the next coronavirus stimulus and asked Democrats to “reject partisan voices” coming from within their own party throughout the negotiation process.

Trump opened the night’s coronavirus press briefing by mourning the loss of former Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain and the other 150,000 Americans who have lost their lives due to coronavirus.

The president then urged Congress to make sure the stimulus includes a temporary extension of unemployment insurance, more than $100 billion, a temporary pause on evictions, and more than $100 billion in funding for schools to reopen safely in the fall.

WATCH:

On the expanded funding for schools, Trump stated that if schools choose not to reopen then that money should go to families with school aged children before turning his attention directly to Democratic Leadership.

“To pass a bill, Democrats must reject the extreme partisan voices in their party,” he stated. “They’re looking at November 3, and probably a day later they’ll say, ‘ok, let’s open up the country.’ But the Democrats have to reject the extreme partisan voices in their  party so we can get our country going even quicker than it’s going right now.”

WATCH:

The administration’s lead negotiators, White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, are scheduled to meet with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer at 8:00 pm on Thursday evening for yet another round of stimulus talks. Pelosi, Schumer, and a significant number of Republicans have flatly rejected the stimulus proposal offered by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell earlier this week.

    SO …the democrats want to keep the 600 a month FEDERAL unemployment in force (trying to buy votes)….In N.C. (9th from the bottom of 50 states) pays an individual 350 per week for a person making 40,000 a year…with the 350 plus 600 =950 a week equals 49,400 an increase of 9,400 per year….why would they want to go back to work?
