Looks like the White House and Pelosi are back at the negotiating table, working on a COVID-19 relief package. Again.

More from the New York Post:

WASHINGTON — Frantic negotiations are expected to continue through the weekend on another round of coronavirus economic relief — even as top Republicans like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell express doubt that a deal can be reached before the election in 25 days.

According to multiple reports, President Trump is now eager to reach a deal after ordering an end to the talks between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Tuesday — a move that sent the stock market plummeting.

White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told Fox Business that the president had approved a “revised package” for Mnuchin to offer to Pelosi ahead of a phone call between the pair slated for Friday afternoon.

Earlier this week, Trump ended negotiations with Speaker Pelosi tweeting:



Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.

I have an even better idea; let’s stop spending federal money on coronavirus bullshit.

I expect the Swamp mouthpiece headlines to be spun. Why accept their framing?

Trump Drops B S Non-Negotiations on Side Issues

“We put out a proposal for more, immediatd relief for people crushed by the lockdowns. The D’s won’t talk about that, are talking about everything but that, we stepped out.

Getting people help getting through this is our priority. So, direct relief to people crushed by lockdowns. Reopen as much, as fast as we can, to.get out of their way. Ways to manage this disease – therapies, tests, protocols for treatment, masks for people who need them.

We’d be happy to talk about our proposal on that.”

This time the Feckless R’s messaging tripped over specific n general / concrete n abstract (again.)

You want to be on your turf, not theirs. You don’t even have to think to be right most of the time. Wherever they take it, you want to be somewhere else.
