[US] President may use executive orders to pause evictions and payroll tax

12 AUG 2020

With the COVID-19 pandemic still running rampant in the United States, Congressional lawmakers and the Trump Administration have been put under increasing pressure to intervene and do something to help ease the current economic crisis gripping the country. President Trump is reportedly considering issuing executive orders as a short term measure to give the American people some relief.

Republican and Democratic lawmakers have been in lengthy negotiations on a second coronavirus relief package since last week. However, the talks have largely stalled as a result of disagreements about federal unemployment aid as well as aid to local governments suffering the impact of the pandemic. USA Herald reports on the president’s latest statement to White House reporters on the matter and where lawmakers can go from here.
