Coronapandemien has hit the U.S. particularly hard with over 160,000 died, and an increase in unemployment, which months has hit well over ten million.
to get started in the economy and facilitate the udgiftspresset of americans want the president to suspend the so-called 'payroll tax' for everyone until the end of 2020, he tells.
For most employees is the tax according to CNN at around 7,65 percent of wage income goes to federal spending.
Trump will also extend a scheme with the extended unemployment benefits under the coronakrisen.
Even if the help is needed, have the Democrats and the Republicans had uncommon difficulty agreeing on a new aid package. On Friday it was in total deadlock.

Many republicans are concerned about a growing debt, then under the coronakrisen already adopted stimulus packages to 3000 billion u.s. dollars, equivalent to good and well-18.800 billion.
Trumps party played in the negotiations out with a new package of 1000 billion dollars, but it is according to Democrats, is far from sufficient to do anything about the crisis.
It was a disappointing meeting, said Senate democratic minority leader, Chuck Schumer, on Friday.

Also a stop for the terminations of the americans who can't pay their rent, has expired.
the Constitution does not give the president powers to control federal spending. Therefore, similar it not that Trump has the legal power to decide how money should be used under coronakrisen.
Thus, it may end in a protracted conflict in court, if the president chooses to proceed with its project.
Trump says that he will sign a federal decree to provide crisis counseling at the end of the week. He elaborates not, whether he believes this or next week.
