Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told Fox News Wednesday that the latest
coronavirus stimulus package formulated by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-
Calif., is "very partisan" and unlikely to go anywhere.

"I'm very pleased that during this crisis, Congress acted very quickly in
a bipartisan way," Mnuchin told "The Story." "The last two bills in the
Senate [passed] 96-0 and 100-0, and we just got ready to spend $3
trillion.

"What Speaker Pelosi is moving forward with is clearly a very partisan
bill," he added. "This is not in the spirit of anything that has been
bipartisan and I can't see that moving forward in its current framework in
any event."

Host Martha MacCallum followed up by asking Mnuchin whether reports that
Pelosi and President Trump are not on regular speaking terms are true.

"I can't comment," Mnuchin responded. "I know she and the president have
had conversations at various different times.


"Over the last month I have been the primary negotiator, and as you know I
lived up at the Senate almost round the clock, and I spoke to [Senate
Majority Leader]Mitch McConnell, [House Minority Leader] Kevin McCarthy,
[Senate Minority LEader Charles] Schumer and Pelosi and the president and
[White House Chief of Staff] Mark Meadows constantly," he continued.

"This was a team effort on our side. Although I was the primary
negotiator, I was acting at the president's direction."

In an interview with the Associated Press published earlier Wednesday,
Pelosi defended the size of the $3 trillion stimulus by saying that the
"American people are worth it."

The speaker acknowledged that the proposal is a starting point in
negotiations with President Donald Trump and congressional Republicans,
most of whom have flatly rejected the coronavirus relief bill headed for a
House vote Friday.

“DOA,” Trump said during an event at the White House. “Dead on arrival.”

Donald J. Trump, 304 electoral votes to 227, defeated compulsive liar in
denial Hillary Rodham Clinton on December 19th, 2016. The clown car
parade of the democrat party ran out of gas and got run over by a Trump
truck.

Congratulations President Trump. Thank you for cleaning up the disaster
of the Obama presidency.

Under Barack Obama's leadership, the United States of America became the
The World According To Garp. Obama sold out heterosexuals for Hollywood
queer liberal democrat donors.

President Trump has boosted the economy, reduced illegal immigration,
appointed dozens of judges and created jobs.

Senile loser and NAMBLA supporter Nancy Pelosi got "Trumped" on February
5, 2020. "President Trump, Not Guilty."
