This morning, President Trump took to Twitter to taunt Nancy Pelosi into doing the right thing for the American people. President Trump tweeted “The House and Senate should IMMEDIATELY Approve 25 Billion Dollars for Airline Payroll Support and 135 Billion Dollars for Paycheck Protection Program for Small Business. Both of these will be fully paid for with unused funds from the Cares Act. Have this money. I will sign now!”

Pelosi is now in a can’t win situation. That’s why President Trump is considered a master negotiator. When he cut off negotiations on a COVID relief package, analysts of all political stripes said that he’d handed Democrats a political victory. Obviously, President Trump had this quartet of aces up his sleeve when he ordered Secretary Mnuchin and Chief of Staff Meadows to suspend negotiations.

That announcement yesterday sent stocks tumbling, with the DJIA finishing off 375.88. With this new plan, the DJIA (Dow Jones Industrial Average) is currently up 424.79, gaining back everything from yesterday, then jumping above the 28,000 mark.

Less than 30 minutes later, President Trump tweeted this:

Meanwhile, Democrats continue insulting President Trump:

This is behavior unbecoming of the Speaker’s office:

Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), in a call with Democratic lawmakers on Tuesday, floated the question of whether the steroids President Trump is taking to treat his case of the coronavirus led to his decision to endorse parts of a coronavirus stimulus deal just hours after telling his negotiators to walk away from talks.

“Believe me, there are people … who think that steroids have an impact on your thinking. So, I don’t know,” Pelosi said on a call with Democrats after Trump’s Tuesday night tweets, according to two sources.

What’s happening is that Pelosi has found herself boxed in again. Because she’s boxed in, she’s upset. If she doesn’t pass these standalone relief bills, she’s the villain to the airline industry, to people everywhere waiting for stimulus checks and to small businesses. That’s a disaster for Democrats up for re-election. It would likely hurt Joe Biden, too. If Biden doesn’t support President Trump’s plan and doesn’t offer a plan of his own, then he’s on the hot seat, too. More immediately, this becomes the hot topic for tonight’s Vice Presidential Debate.
