President Trump announced Tuesday that he has halted negotiations with Democrats for a new round of federal coronavirus aid, tweeting that Speaker Nancy Pelosi “is not negotiating in good faith” and is seeking too much money.

 

In a series of tweets, Trump said he is “rejecting” a request for a $2.4 trillion package, which is far more money than the $1.6 trillion offer from Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin, who has been negotiating on behalf of the president.

Trump said he plans to pass a “major stimulus bill” after he wins a second term “that focuses on hardworking Americans and small businesses.”

Mnuchin and Pelosi, a California Democrat, have made little progress toward a deal on more federal aid.:snip:
