Trump Wants To Immediately Sign Stand-Alone Bill For $1,200 Stimulus Checks


President Donald Trump said in a tweet Tuesday night that he is willing to sign a stand alone bill authorizing stimulus check payments of $1,200 for American citizens if the House can deliver such a bill to his desk.

The announcements come hours after President Trump indicated that he would end stimulus talks until after the November election, as Republicans and Democrats remain stalemated over so-called "poison pill" legislation in the plan proposed by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).

"If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy? @MarkMeadows @senmajldr @kevinomccarthy @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer," President Trump tweeted at 10:18 p.m. Eastern Time on Monday night.
