Pelosi gives the White House a 48 hour deadline to address 'differences' in stimulus talks

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has reportedly given the White House a deadline of 48 hours to address an “array of … differences” in stimulus negotiations, Bloomberg reports. Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin spoke for an hour and 15 minutes on Saturday night, with the agreement of speaking again on Monday about a package to help the economy through the COVID-19 crisis.

“While there was some encouraging news on testing, there remains work to do to ensure … additional measures to address the virus’ disproportionate impact on communities of color,” Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, Drew Hammill, said in a tweet.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), meanwhile, “has said he would not put a potential $1.8 trillion+ deal struck by Democrats and the Trump administration on the Senate floor,” Axios reports.
