Meadows: Trump admin proposed $1.5T worth relief to Dems

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said on Thursday the Trump administration had proposed a $1.5 trillion worth relief bill to the Democrats in the US Congress.

The middle-ground proposal laid out by the administration was suggested as it would be "difficult" if the price tag reaches $2 trillion, Meadows added.

The talks over a new funding package between the two parties are currently amid an impasse, leading the Democratic lawmakers to lay out a $2.2 trillion proposal for which the lower congressional chamber had delayed voting earlier hoping to reach an accord with the White House on the issue before forwarding the legislation to the Senate.
