This is simple. They blocked money for #PPP  because unfortunately Senate democratic leaders view every request as a chance to get something they want in return. But help to #SmallBusiness  is not a GOP “ask”. It’s something everyone supports. This is no time for partisan games.

Ridiculous headline They didn’t even have a proposal until our ask for #ppp  funds came out & then threw one out just so you could write this kind of headline. They view every proposal,even one with bipartisan support,as a chance to extract something unrelated that they want.

Schumer & Pelosi had no near term proposal to get money for anyone UNTIL a request was made for more funds for #smallbusiness  Then it turned into “we have to get something out of it” #PPP  is lending $3 billion per hour,so when it runs out & stops,remember what happened today

#PPP UPDATE: Real daily progress on the issues raised by lenders: Need promissory note & closing documents: ✔️ More capacity in SBA portal: ✔️ New portal for non-SBA lenders: ✔️ Lift cap on @WellsFargo : ✔️ Legal immunity: ✔️ Ability to sell #PPPloansloans : expect ✔️ today

Another two✔️ on #PPP  issues: @federalreserve  announced it will help lenders move #PPPloansloans  off their balance sheets @FDICgov  And will NOT count PPP toward bank leverage ratios. Term sheet here: FAQ here:

#PPP  NOTES 2/3: PPP has some serious implementation issues Yet over 3500 lenders have approved over 500000 #PPPloansloans  at rate of over $3 billion per hour. True,the program isn’t ideal yet. But it also isn’t paralyzed if it committed 30% of the funds in its first four days.

#PPP  NOTES 3/3: PPP is a massive new program,with only 6 days to implement. It was bound to have significant glitches But every day more of the glitches are being ✔️ off the list & more lenders are participating. And so far it’s the only part of the #CARESAct  thats operational

@bittyandbeaus  is a #SmallBusiness  which employs workers with intellectual & developmental disabilities. In the midst of the #CoronaVirus  shutdown they were able to work with community bankers at @LiveOakBank  & use #PPP  to save their employees jobs.


Some in our media can’t contain their glee & delight in reporting that the U.S. has more #CoronaVirus  cases than #China  Beyond being grotesque,its bad journalism We have NO IDEA how many cases China really has but without any doubt its significantly more than why they admit to

Former Obama officials & their media protectors can howl all they want. It’s a FACT that as part of #IranDeal  they delivered $1.7 billion in cash to #Iran  And they did this even though Iran owes $55 billion in court ordered payments to American victims of Iranian terrorism

. don’t forget to include on the list your girlfriend in Costa Rica & the ranch you bought her with the money you made from payments from drug traffickers.

Natl Security officials gave a compelling briefing to Senators just now. They answered every important question. Anyone who walks out & says they aren’t convinced action against #Soleimani  was justified is either never going to be convinced or just oppose everything Trump does.

This is very simple. #HongKong  autonomy is the reason the U.S. treats it differently than mainland #China . If Beijing moves to take away autonomy there is no longer any rationale for special treatment.

Very important for the nation to hear @potus  describe events in #Charlottesville  for what they are, a terror attack by #whitesupremacists 

A new & troubling allegation has emerged. A statement under penalty of perjury that #PalmBeachCounty  filled out new ballots to replace damaged ones without allowing campaign representative to witness the process of creating the new ballot as required by #Florida  law
