WASHINGTON D.C. — President Trump calls for the COVID relief bill to be reassessed and money earmarked for Americans raised.

In a video released on Twitter, he described multiple provisions for money being sent to Pakistan, Belize, Egypt, the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., for the prevention of Asian Carp, construction projects at the FBI, and stimulus checks for immigrants.

He says not enough money is being given to small businesses, singling out restaurants being in particular need.

"I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000, or $4,000 for a couple" Trump said. "i'm also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items in this legislation."
