(FOX BUSINESS) – House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is facing some pushback among some Democrats after sharply rejecting the White House’s latest — and most expensive — $1.8 trillion coronavirus relief offer over the weekend.
“Nancy Pelosi take this deal!” Andrew Yang, a former Democratic presidential candidate, tweeted on Saturday. “Put politics aside people are hurting.”
The Trump administration’s proposal — which came just a few days after the president abruptly called off negotiations before reversing course and pushing for a bipartisan agreement — drew criticism from both Republicans and Democrats, dimming the odds of another round of emergency aid before the Nov. 3 election.
In a weekly letter to Democratic colleagues, Pelosi said the administration’s proposal lacked a “strategic plan to crush the virus” and gave President Trump too much power in determining how the funds were spent.
