Pelosi Open To Standalone Airline Relief; Direct Payments To Americans Left Hanging

• https://www.zerohedge.com, Tyler Durden

"The secretary inquired about a standalone airlines bill. The speaker reminded him that Republicans blocked that bill on Friday & asked him to review the DeFazio bill so that they could have an informed conversation," tweeted Pelosi spokesman, Drew Hammill.

Speaker Pelosi & Secretary Mnuchin spoke by phone at 9:33 a.m. The Secretary inquired about a standalone airlines bill. The Speaker reminded him that Republicans blocked that bill on Friday & asked him to review the DeFazio bill so that they could have an informed conversation.

And while President Trump mentioned an airline standalone bill following a barrage of Tuesday tweets, Hammill made no mention of the $1,200 direct stimulus payments Trump said he would sign off on "IMMEDIATELY."

According to Bloomberg, "Mnuchin's call underscores the Trump administration's concern about the state of the airline industry, which has been walloped by the Covid-19 crisis and seen tens of thousands of job cuts. Help for the carriers had been part of a broader coronavirus relief package negotiation, which Trump abruptly ended Tuesday."
