Trump indicates support for airline relief and PPP program

President Trump tweets that the House and Senate should “immediately” approve $25B for airline payroll support and $135B for the Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business.

“Both of these will be fully paid for with unused funds from the Cares Act. Have this money. I will sign now,” he adds.

A few hours ago Trump said he wanted talks on stimulus to end until after the election.
