White House virus relief plan ‘insufficient’, says Pelosi

UNITED States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said yesterday that the White House’s new Covid-19 relief proposal is insufficient to contain the pandemic and meet families’ needs, reported Xinhua news agency.

“On Friday, the Trump administration returned to the table with a proposal that attempted to address some of the concerns Democrats have in the coronavirus relief negotiations,” Pelosi wrote in a letter to her Democratic colleagues, adding this proposal “amounted to one step forward, two steps back”.
