Approval of funding has stalled due to disagreements between Democrats and Republicans.
President Donald Trump said on Friday that Congress should approve without delay and without making any additions a measure to provide new assistance to small businesses in the amount of $ 250 billion. Because of disagreements between Republicans and Democrats, congressmen cannot agree and allocate additional funding to help small businesses.
Democrats are blocking a 251 Billion Dollar funding boost for Small Businesses which will help them keep their employees. It should be for only that reason, with no additions. We should have a big Infrastructure Phase Four with Payroll Tax Cuts & more. Big Economic Bounceback!

“Democrats are blocking a $ 251 billion increase in small business funding that will help [small businesses] keep their employees. This should only be done for this reason, without making any additions. We are planning a big fourth phase of aid, with funding infrastructure, payroll tax cuts, and other measures. Most rehabilitation of the economy!» – wrote President in his Twitter.
