White House proposes checks to Americans amid COVID-19 outbreak

The Trump administration and Senate GOP are discussing a $1 trillion stimulus package amid the Coronavirus outbreak.

"At my direction, [Treasury] Secretary Mnuchin is meeting today with senators on additional stimulus packages," Trump said.

Mnuchin announced that the White House is looking to send checks directly to American households.

"We are looking at sending checks to Americans immediately. What we heard from hardworking Americans, many companies are now shut down whether bars or restaurants, Americans need cash now and the president wants to get [them] cash now. I mean now in the next two weeks," Mnuchin said. "We want to make sure Americans get money in their pockets quickly," he said.
