Mnuchin: Stimulus Money Should Last For 10 Weeks

Business Insider reports:

President Donald Trump’s appointed head of the Treasury, Steven Mnuchin, is under fire for comments he made Wednesday in which he appeared to suggest the $1,200 stimulus payments could last people up to 10 weeks.

“I think the entire package provides economic relief overall for about 10 weeks,” Mnuchin told CBS’ Face the Nation.

“Hopefully we will kill this virus quicker and we won’t need it, but we have liquidity to put into the American economy to support American workers and American business.”
