The Trump administration will extend unemployment payments until the end of the year

The relevant decree can be signed “by the end of the week”, “lawyers are working on it,” the White House said.





US President Donald Trump has promised to extend unemployment benefits until the end of the year, even if it is not possible to agree on it with Congress. This was reported by Business Insider on Friday, August 7.

“If the Democrats continue to hold the stimulus package hostage, I will exercise my presidential right to give Americans the help they need,” Trump said at a news conference at his New Jersey Golf club.

According to him, the corresponding order is going to be signed by the end of the week.

In addition to unemployment benefits, the American leader intends to extend the ban on eviction for non-payment of rent, reduce the payroll tax, and exempt Americans from paying student loans.

Earlier it was reported that unemployment in the US in July fell by 0.4%, to 10.2% of the total working-age population, due to an increase in jobs by 1.8 million.

Recall that in the second quarter of 2020, the US economy fell by a record 32.9% due to the new coronavirus pandemic.
