Can I let you in on a secret? We have the money to extend unemployment benefits and send the American people $1,200 direct payments. The Pentagon spends $2,000,000,000 a day.

A proposal by Pentagon officials to slash Military Healthcare by $2.2 billion dollars has been firmly and totally rejected by me. We will do nothing to hurt our great Military professionals & heroes as long as I am your President. Thank you!

The GOP including $0 for the USPS, $0 for our elections, and $21,300,000,000 for the Pentagon in a COVID relief bill is the real looting in America.

I don't know who needs to hear this, but including another $21,300,000,000 for the Pentagon in a bill that refuses to extend extra unemployment benefits for 25,000,000 people is the real looting in America.

The Senate Republican plan: - $29,400,000,000 for the Pentagon - $0 for hazard pay - $0 for nutrition assistance - $0 for the uninsured/under-insured - $0 for the Postal Service - $0 for state and local governments - 100% deduction for three-martini CEO lunches What a disaster.
