Governors air frustrations with Trump on unemployment plans

Governors and state officials aired their frustrations on Monday with a memo from President Trump that would require states to cover a portion of enhanced unemployment benefits for their residents.

Trump's order would put a further strain on state governments already facing budget constraints as the coronavirus pandemic has dried up revenue sources.

The timing of the memo adds insult to injury for some states. The president spent weeks railing against including state aid in any final stimulus measure, deriding it as a "bailout" for Democratic-run states.

And the White House last week informed dozens of governors they would be required to shoulder 25 percent of costs associated with using the National Guard to respond to the pandemic.


Remember this is the asshole who bankrupted 5 casinos. He's actually rather clueless when it comes to budgeting.
