Mnuchin: Stimulus bill before election is unlikely

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said on Wednesday that reaching a deal with Democrats on a new stimulus bill before the November 3 election is "difficult."

"Getting something done before the election and executing on that would be difficult just given where we are," Mnuchin told reporters. However, the Treasury secretary said negotiations are ongoing despite both sides remaining "far apart" on several issues.

Earlier, Mnuchin spoke with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about continuing negotiations on more relief for Americans struggling amid the coronavirus crisis.
