WH: Biden unmovable on size of $1.9T COVID relief bill

President Joe Biden is "unmovable" on the size of the $1.9 trillion coronavirus relief package, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki told reporters on Thursday.

Psaki also defended Senate Democrats’ decision to limit eligibility for direct payments as part of Biden's relief package, claiming that 98% of Americans who received stimulus checks in December would also receive checks this time around.

Earlier, Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer vowed the Senate would pass the $1.9 trillion bill this week "no matter how long it takes."
