If Dems agree to 'fair' deal, we'll have one this week - Mnuchin

Should the Democrats agree to a "fair" coronavirus relief deal, it will be ready this week, according to comments made by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin on Monday.

In an interview on CNBC, Mnuchin described Democrats as "unreasonable," although he conceded he believes House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are willing to compromise. "The president needed to take action," Mnuchin said of President Donald Trump's executive orders.

Regarding the app TikTok, Mnuchin declined to comment on ongoing talks between Microsoft and ByteDance, but said the issue was bipartisan. "There is100% agreement between Republicans and Democrats, we cannot have an app like this that's collecting information on Americans of this size and scale," Mnuchin concluded.
