  • S on Wednesday face the prospect of a year and government shutdown on top of a raging pandemic after outgoing President Donald Trump threatened not to sign a $2.3 trillion package that includes government funding and coronavirus aid for Americans.


  • In a video posted to Social media on Tuesday evening, Trump surprised some of his closest officials by demanding that the bill be revised to include $2000 payments to each eligible American more than tripled the $600 per person included in the bill.


  • I'm asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2000 or $4000 for a couple.


  • Current federal funding is also due to expire this Monday.


  • If Trump does not sign the bill into law, that would furlough millions of federal workers and shut down wide swaths of the government at a time when it is rushing to distribute to coronavirus vaccines and contend with a massive hack that officials say was perpetrated by Russia.


  • Trump, as he bashed the bill, also continued to falsely claim that he might remain in office.


  • I'm also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a covert relief package.


  • And maybe that administration will be me.


  • The package was the result of months of negotiations between congressional Republicans and Democrats.


  • House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said her chamber could vote on Thursday to raise the individual payments to Americans if Republican leader Kevin McCarthy agreed to do so.


  • Trump is scheduled to leave for Florida on Wednesday afternoon for the Christmas holiday.
