Collins Is Concerned About Trump Killing Stimulus Bill

Mediaite reports:

President Donald Trump’s surprise announcement about stopping stimulus negotiations until after the election sent shockwaves through DC, and even concerned some Republicans.

Senator Susan Collins put out a statement saying, “Waiting until after the election to reach an agreement on the next Covid-19 relief package is a huge mistake. I have already been in touch with the Secretary of the Treasury, one of the chief negotiators, and with several of my Senate colleagues.”

Even some Trump advisers said “they are utterly perplexed by the decision” and one Republican lawmaker “told Axios that this is ‘a gift’ for Pelosi.”
