The Senate reached a deal on a $484 billion stimulus package Tuesday afternoon, and New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo was to meet with President Donald Trump at the White House after some fiery exchanges over their respective handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
The stimulus deal senators agreed to, much of it aimed at boosting small businesses, will supplement the $2 trillion legislation passed last month. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell hailed it as a “bipartisan agreement.”
Cuomo has repeatedly chastised the president for asking governors to lead the struggle against the outbreak without enough federal resources. Trump responded this week by tweeting the governor should “spend more time ‘doing’ and less time ‘complaining.’ “
