President Trump said Monday that he’s looking at steps he can take with executive orders on issues like stopping evictions, since he claimed Democrats aren’t serious about negotiating a new coronavirus relief bill.

“A lot of people are going to be evicted but I’m going to stop it because I’ll do it myself if I have to,” Trump told reporters at an event at the White House. “I have a lot of powers with respect to executive orders and we’re looking at that very seriously right now.”

He didn’t specify what any of those powers were, though.

Trump’s comments came after The Washington Post reported that his administration was eyeing steps they could take unilaterally if no deal is reached on Capitol Hill. It’s unclear exactly what those might be, but the discussions are a reflection of officials’ increasingly pessimistic outlook for the talks with congressional Democrats.

2. "Once again the do-nothing Democrats refused to do their job,

Just like in Portland...” yadda yadda.

That’s what I’m anticipating as the message (aside from “here’s money! Vote for me!”).

4. You realize the House can't do anything without the Senate right?

McConnell is Dr. No, the Democrats have put a number of options on the table and they keep saying no because there isn't enough pork for the rich people in there. They also want to cut medicare and social security they keep trying to tack it onto these bills. Read a copy of the most recent bill the democrats in the house put out, it was pretty near perfect.

8. Well, the administration's problem seems to be with Senate Republicans.

Democrats are in favor of extending enhanced unemployment benefits and the moratorium on evictions, which this article says Trump also supports (first I've heard of that). It's only the Republicans who are opposed to those things, but this excerpt gives the impression that Democrats in Congress are the main obstacle.

9. Makes no difference

He's not going to call out his own party. It'll be "DEMOCRATS SIT AROUND DOING NOTHING". Guarantee that.

10. Remember the when was an attempt to destroy democracy

When ever Obama picked up a pen because he MIGHT use it to draft an Executive Order?

11. He's going to do no such thing ...

He might kinda want the $600 to be extended because that huge loss of extra consumer money from the economy if not extended would hurt it badly right before the election.

But the money is friggin' joke AFA him doing it of his own accord. This isn't a few billion $ to build a wall he can steal from the military, justifying it under a national defence umbrella.

He could maybe extend the extension by executive order, but you watch ... he won't. He's not going hurt fellow real estate investors like that.

This is BS posturing, pure and simple.

12. No Way Republicans Support This

Most people that will be evicted will be voting Democratic. A “change of address” happening this close to an election will likely lead to disenfranchisement of lots of democratic leaning voters not counting what’s going on with the USPS.

Buckle up folks, it’s going to be rough riding into November

Right?
