McConnell: Pelosi stalled in relief bill talks

United States Majority Leader Mitch McConnell blasted on Monday House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, claiming that she stalled in the negotiations with the White House over the next pandemic relief package.

In an interview with Fox News, McConnell stressed that he expected the talks to be over by now and that he was hoping to spend the week ahead in the Senate turning "a major agreement into law."

Both United States President Donald Trump and White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany criticized Pelosi earlier in the day, while house speaker chided Trump's executive orders, signed amid the standstill in the talks, the day prior.
