A Senate Republican supports President Trump’s call to Congress to fatten Americans’ coronavirus stimulus tests and calls it a “reasonable demand” ”

“I hope Congress is listening,” said Sen Lindsey Graham (R-South Carolina) tweeted Friday night after spending part of the Christmas season with the president in Trump’s West Palm Beach, Florida, Golf Club

“I am convinced that he is more determined than ever to increase stimulus payments to $ 2000 per person,” added Graham

Trump lobbied Republicans this week after last-minute rejecting the $ 900 billion bailout package that Congress passed Monday after months of delay

His sharp criticism of the $ 600 relief checks Americans would receive under the plan upset lawmakers when it abandoned the measure, which included a $ 4 trillion government fund, unsigned

The House will vote on separate laws that will limit the economic reviews to 2$ 000 will increase – but several Senate Republicans have signaled opposition to the idea

“It took us a long time to get to where we are,” said Sen Roy Blunt (R-Mo) said Thursday “I think reopening this bill would be a mistake”

But Trump continued to apply pressure and once again slammed “the meager 600 dollars that are now on the bill” in a Saturday tweet

Georgia Sen Kelly Loeffler – who is locked in a tight Jan 5 runoff race – said on Wednesday that she too would consider Trump’s request for a bigger incentive “if it recycles wasteful spending””
