Trump is threatening to sign a sweeping executive order tomorrow if Democrats don’t agree to a relief bill:
NY POST – President Trump said Thursday he plans to sign sweeping executive orders “tomorrow afternoon” if Democrats won’t agree to a new coronavirus stimulus bill.
Trump says he’s ready to revive a moratorium on evictions and a federal supplement for unemployment insurance, both of which lapsed last month. He also floated a temporary payroll tax cut and action on student loans.
“I’ve notified my staff to continue working on an Executive Order with respect to Payroll Tax Cut, Eviction Protections, Unemployment Extensions, and Student Loan Repayment Options,” Trump tweeted.
White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows previously gave Democrats a Friday afternoon deadline to make concessions.
I seriously doubt Pelosi will pay any attention to this, but I hope Trump is serious.
Mark Levin does too, as he tweeted this morning that Trump should “end the Democrats’ blackmail, extend unemployment and temporarily drop payroll taxes by executive order”:
FWIW, my advice, end the Democrats’ blackmail, extend unemployment and temporarily drop payroll taxes by executive order, and go to political war against them and Biden everyday up to the election and crush them.https://t.co/dvhBHhUXQ2

I totally agree. This election is a war and if Trump wants to win he’s got to treat it like one. Democrats are fed up that they’ve failed so far to oust him, but if they can convince voters to dump him in November they’ll say it was all worth it. That’s why Trump and his supporters have to fight even harder to win so that all the battles he’s won thus far culminate in victory in November. We have to stick it to Democrats one last time…
