Pelosi: WH refuses to sign Dems' virus testing plan

United States House Speaker Nancy Pelosi revealed on Monday the White House had refused to approve the coronavirus testing strategy proposed by the Democratic Party despite Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin's claims to the contrary.

"Today, we are waiting for an important response on several concerns, including on action to crush the virus," she wrote in a letter to House Democrats. "The Republicans' continued surrender to the virus – particularly amid the recent wave of cases – is official malfeasance."

Pelosi previously said that reaching a deal on the new stimulus with President Donald Trump's administration could happen this Monday but stressed it would be possible "only if the president wants it."
