Trump's unemployment order is 'ruse' - Schumer

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (pictured) criticized on Wednesday the executive order on unemployment benefits signed by United States President Donald Trump, calling it "a ruse," and claiming that the crisis caused by the coronavirus pandemic requires a different approach.

Commenting on the report, published by The Wall Street Journal, which claims that the funding envisioned in the order could be exhausted in as short as six weeks, Schumer tweeted: "What a ruse. The American people need a real solution that offers real help!"

Earlier this week, Schumer urged the negotiators to continue the talks on the fourth installment of the COVID-19 relief package, stressing that Trump's executive orders do not solve the problem at hand.
