In this news, we discuss the Kudlow says unclear if COVID-19 aid would be part of government funding bill.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow said on Wednesday that the Trump administration planned to push its agenda forward this year even as election results remained unknown, including a standing resolution to fund the government and a possible COVID-19 stimulus bill.
Kudlow, in an interview on CNBC, said he “would meet with the president on an agenda.” We have a lame Congress, but we have a lot of work to do. He added that he would also meet with US Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin later Wednesday, adding that it was not clear whether relief from the coronavirus would be tied to the funding measure.
