‘Not about the ridiculous Green New Deal’: Trump rips Pelosi for adding policy to coronavirus legislation

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi is wasting valuable time plugging aspects of the Green New Deal into the coronavirus economic relief package, according to President Trump.

Pelosi released her own legislation after Democrats killed the coronavirus relief package in the Senate. The House’s bill includes several seemingly unrelated stipulations, including an increase in collective bargaining power for unions, canceling the debt accrued by the U.S. Postal Service, increased fuel emission standards for airlines, and tax credits for the production of alternative fuels.

In a tweet Tuesday morning, Trump ripped Pelosi’s proposal, writing, “This is not about the ridiculous Green New Deal. It is about putting our great workers and companies BACK TO WORK!”

He added, “Congress must approve the deal, without all of the nonsense, today. The longer it takes, the harder it will be to start up our economy. Our workers will be hurt!”

The future of the coronavirus package is unclear. The Senate has already failed to pass its legislation in two consecutive votes, and it does not look as though Trump will support the House’s version.
