In this news, we discuss the Pelosi says she is ‘optimistic’ can reach COVID deal with White House.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – United States Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi on Tuesday said she was optimistic Democrats could strike a deal with the Trump administration on further relief from COVID-19 that could gain help early next month.
Pelosi, in an interview with Bloomberg TV, said the administration had come a long way on sanitary arrangements for testing to tackle the outbreak, but more work was needed to deal with state aid and local and liability protections, among other areas.
She added that there should be an indication of a possible deal later Tuesday.
