But be careful: The following may have caused a slight whiplash.
On Monday night, the House of Representatives received a number of mixed votes about the president: Conservatives joined Democrats to vote for more incentive controls on the coronavirus, but they also joined to override his veto on a massive defense spending bill, a strong indictment and a sign of his declining power.
Reducing the scope of subsidy controls cost Americans a more generous week of unemployment – but they could have had more generous subsidy controls. The fact is that all this time he had the power to demand large cheques, and he didn’t insist until it seemed too late. He drew a line in the sand against his own negotiators and forced several Republicans to cross.
Forty-four Republicans in the House voted to help Democrats approve more generous $2,000 relief cheques for Covid-19. The party has rejected the Democrats’ attempts to make the cheques more generous before Christmas. It is not certain that the Republican-controlled Senate will have the same change of heart. Currently, a check for $600 is the law.
But Trump suffered a major setback when more than 100 Republicans voted in the House of Representatives, shortly after accepting large direct payments to Americans, to help Democrats lift Trump’s veto by overruling its objection to the annual conservation permit and sending it to the Senate as well.
Another political breakthrough in the field of national defense and security was the assertion of President-elect Joe Biden that his transition team faces new obstacles in the governance of Trump, which she tries to read in the text.
We just don’t get all the information we need from the outgoing administration in key areas of national security, Biden said during a speech in Wilmington, Delaware, after receiving a virtual briefing on national security from its staff.
In my opinion, this is nothing less than irresponsible, he said.
Biden also outlined his views on emerging threats and put climate change at the top of his list – the latest indication that the United States will take a completely different stance after the inauguration.
But while the President-elect cited climate change as an existential threat, security checks seem more urgent, as does the news that the United States may fall behind its goal of vaccinating 10 million Americans this year.
The rescue package also includes billions for the distribution of vaccines.
Trump cashed over $2,000 in checks on Sunday. After pressure from the Republicans and a strong setback, he rejected his promise to shut down the government and partially postpone Covid 19’s aid because of the inspections the Republicans had previously carried out on Capitol Hill.
Trump’s ability to get those few Republicans to buy 2,000 checks is remarkable, for as he prepares to resign, many begin to rediscover the gospel of fiscal responsibility that they largely abandoned during his presidency.
At the last moment, he insisted on more generous additional tests, which temporarily threatened to fail.
House president, Nancy Pelosi, has scheduled a vote to unite Republicans against the aid she supports and against her president, whom she does not support. As the process progressed in the House of Representatives, there was insufficient support under the rules of the House of Representatives for taking more generous measures. But enough Republicans supported the measure to give Pelosi a supermajority and approve the proposal, which is now headed to the U.S. Senate.
That’s what it looks like: Why the vote on the $2,000 stimulus check is an absolute Republican nightmare.
Trump’s campaign objections are about to divide the party again. The votes for the Republican legislators have only just begun. The conservatives of Stallwart could look forward to the official vote in 6th place. January on Capitol Hill will add an element of drama, but the star’s efforts are expected to grind to a halt when lawmakers in both houses vote to accept the election results that Trump falsely disputed.
The question of the day is whether the right of veto signals a weakening of Trump’s influence among the GOP legislators, who may be retaliated against by a loyal following of supporters for whom the president is a hero.
There was further evidence of Trump’s power over the party and the defense’s veto. Republican House of California Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy was among the GOP lawmakers who supported the defense bill – providing a pay increase for military personnel – but voted against removing the veto out of respect for the incumbent president.
No lot line
While most Republicans supported the defense law when it passed the House of Representatives in early December, McCarthy spoke neither for nor against the law after vetoing Trump. Trump, as part of his frustration with Internet companies that he finds unfair to online conservatives, wanted to use the bill as leverage to change the unrelated part of U.S. law that exempts companies such as Facebook from liability for content produced by other companies but socialized on their sites.
There is a two-pronged agreement that the law has its merit, but to change the provision without debate was out of his control and strangely convenient Republicans, who have long sought less rather than more corporate accountability.
In fact, it was the desire of the GOP to relieve certain companies of their responsibility to workers during the Covid pandemic that delayed the signing of the bill to rescue the Trump on Sunday, having previously stated that it would not do so.
Republicans have refused to be accountable, and Democrats have refused to help negotiate additional aid for the unemployed and $600 in checks for millions of Americans, among many other provisions.
Trump laughed for a week that he vetoed the bill and closed the government because the $600 checks weren’t enough to derail his own policies and the Capitol Republicans, who discouraged Democrats.

Trump’s delay in debating the bill, largely led by his own emissaries on Capitol Hill, has cost many Americans a week of rising unemployment.
Megan Meyer is a single mother of two teenagers in Lincoln, Nebraska, who told CNN Monday that she has been trying to live on $154 a week since August after not working since March because her job was in retail and she is at high risk for Covid-19.
It was very difficult, she told CNN’s Brianna Keilar. I had to make a decision for my family: Do I take a health risk that could harm my family, or do I follow the doctor’s advice and change the whole scenario financially?
As Mr Trump has changed his mind, the $600 stimulus vouchers can go to those earning less than $75,000 and $1,200 to those earning double that this week. It is not certain that the increase to $2,000, if approved by the Senate, will slow it down further.
Retired Republican and CNN political analyst Charlie Dent of Pennsylvania, a retired Republican and CNN political analyst of Pennsylvania, spoke of the frustration felt at the sight of Trump management as the House vote approaches Monday.
It almost takes a therapist to explain, Dent said. He’s almost like the little boy who holds his breath and waits for everyone to turn blue, and sometimes he succeeds.
But the deception of the president can even be found among some normally sympathetic viewers. The New York Post, usually attached to Trump, called on the president to end this madness with his gossip magazine coverage on Monday.
