Trump Unilaterally Halts Food Aid

 

President Trump announced Tuesday afternoon that his administration will no longer be working with Democrats on passing a second Covid-19 economic stimulus bill.

In response, Joel Berg, CEO of Hunger Free America, a nationwide nonpartisan, nonprofit organization, said:

“President Trump just suddenly, unilaterally halted negotiations to provide aid to desperately struggling families and small businesses in all 50 states. It is especially egregious that he thereby halted billions more in food aid to hungry Americans, completely ditching the life-saving food nutrition provisions already passed twice by the House. As a result of this Trump tantrum, more Americans will go hungry and more small businesses will go under. This is a heartless dereliction of duties.”
