Will President Donald Trump send you a second stimulus check by executive order?
Here’s what you need to know.
Second Stimulus Checks
Trump signed executive orders today for a payroll tax cut, enhanced unemployment benefits, an eviction moratorium and student loan relief. Trump indicated all week that if Congress did not finalize a stimulus deal, he would take executive action to provide relief to the American people. However, one thing missing from today’s executive orders—second stimulus checks.
There is bipartisan support in Congress for a $1,200 stimulus check, and Trump supports a second round of stimulus checks too. Trump has even said second stimulus checks could be more than than $1,200. However, his executive orders do not include any checks.
