The White House has said if talks failed the president was prepared to take unilateral action through executive orders to address unemployment insurance, home evictions, student loans and a payroll tax cut. He said that if he is reelected in November, he would look at the possibility of making the payroll tax permanent.
"You're wrong on that because it's a political activity and they have exceptions, political activity and it's also a peaceful protest", Trump responded.
At the start of his speech, Trump encouraged Americans to continue social distancing, wash their hands, and wear masks.
Trump said he was taking executive action because "We've had it".
Perhaps most crucially, he meant to extend the unemployment benefits that have run out, but it was not clear whether the assistance would remain at $600 a week or where the money would come from.
"Voters already know Republicans are skeptical about unemployment insurance to begin with, so they're not going to buy some bull-- Republican argument that Democrats are the ones blocking an extension of unemployment", said one senior House Democratic aide who spoke on the condition of anonymity because he wasn't authorized to discuss party strategy.
Democrats said they offered to reduce a proposed $3.4 trillion coronavirus aid package, which the House passed in May but the Senate ignored, by almost one third if Republicans would agree to more than double their $1 trillion counteroffer but Mr Trump's negotiators turned them down.
But Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin told reporters shortly afterward that the request for GOP negotiators to increase their offer by $1 trillion, putting the top-line number at around $2 trillion, is "a non-starter".
Trump said he will also be looking at income and capital gains tax cuts. "We've said by the end of the week, we wanted to reach an agreement on the major issues", Mnuchin said Thursday. "Unfortunately, [Republicans] rejected it". Republicans have been unable to unify behind any plan, but one floated proposal rang in at a more modest $1 trillion and omitted Democratic priorities like state funding and election aid.
Mrs Pelosi said in a news conference that she was willing to offer a compromise. On Friday, the president announced he will act unilaterally to reinstate enhanced unemployment benefits, defer student loan payments and reinstate a federal moratorium on evictions.
Democrats have offered to reduce her nearly $1 trillion demand for state and local governments considerably, but some of Pelosi's proposed cost savings would accrue chiefly because she would shorten the timeframe for benefits like food stamps.
She wrote that the sides are "a couple hundred billion dollars apart" on money to help schools reopen.
Mnuchin said renewal of a $600 per-week pandemic jobless boost and huge demands by Democrats for aid to state and local governments are the key areas where they are stuck. The policy will be extended through the end of the year.
