Pelosi says stimulus deal possible before election

United States House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Wednesday that she wants to reach a coronavirus stimulus deal with Congress Republicans and the White House before the presidential elections on November 3.

Speaking on the Joe Madison Show on Sirius XM, Pelosi added she is "happy" with the state of the stimulus talks. However, the Democrat added that President Donald Trump will need to convince Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell that it is important to agree on stimulus as soon as possible as she thinks McConnell might not mind finishing the deal after the election.

Earlier, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows said that he expects some kind of stimulus deal in Congress in the next 48 hours.
