Biden urges Senate to pass $1.9 trillion relief bill

United States President Joe Biden urged the Senate to quickly pass his relief package after the House approved the $1.9 trillion bill. "Now, the bill moves to the United States Senate, where I hope it will receive quick action. We have no time to waste," Biden said on Saturday.

"If we act now, decisively, quickly and boldly, we can finally get ahead of this virus. We can finally get our economy moving again. And the people of this country have suffered far too much for too long. We need to relieve that suffering," he underlined.

Earlier, the Democratic-controlled House voted 219 to 212 to approve the bill worth $1.9 trillion in order to aid Americans suffering from the coronavirus pandemic's effect on the economy.
