Trump: We need to keep airlines going

Airlines need support from the United States, President Donald Trump said at the White House and added that the country cannot allow itself to "lose" its transportation system.

Asked at a press conference if he would back legislation in Congress that would put another $25 billion into airlines to help them cover wages, Trump stressed, "its important to keep them going" and noted he would back such a bill regardless of the party it comes from in Congress.

The US president commented that some airlines are doing "modestly at best" amid the coronavirus pandemic. The CARES Act put $50 billion into aviation in the US.
