BREAKING: Trump explains “I simply want to get our great people $2000”

Moments ago, President Trump tweeted “I simply want to get our great people $2000, rather than the measly $600 that is now in the bill. Also, stop the billions of dollars in “pork”.”

Christmas day, Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted “After spending some time with President @realDonaldTrump today, I am convinced he is more determined than ever to increase stimulus payments to $2000 per person and challenge Section 230 big tech liability protection.”

He added “Both are reasonable demands, and I hope Congress is listening. The biggest winner would be the American people.”

On the same day, Trump tweeted “Made many calls and had meetings at Trump International in Palm Beach, Florida.”

He asked “Why would politicians not want to give people $2000, rather than only $600? It wasn’t their fault, it was China. Give our people the money!”

Wednesday, Senator Rand Paul shared four specific examples of “waste we need to stop.”

Paul wrote:

The Department of Defense spent $174,000,000.00 supplying drones to the Afghan National Army and then subsequently lost them.

The National Institutes of Health is spending five years and $1,039,544.00 to try to help people get over their fears of going to the dentist.
