  • Pelosi Gives Trump Admin Tuesday Deadline For Relief Negotiations

"I'm optimistic because, again, we've been back and forth on all of this".

But Pelosi insisted in a call with Democratic colleagues that she did want to pass legislation before the election, saying she didn't want to carry "the droppings of this grotesque elephant into the next presidency", according to a person on the call who spoke on the condition of anonymity to discuss it.

"Senate Republicans have been very vocal" in their opposition to a deal "even close to" Trump's offer, Meadows said.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin continued "to narrow their differences" in an nearly hour-long phone conversation Monday, according to Pelosi's spokesperson Drew Hammill. Hammill said Pelosi and Mnuchin would continue speaking Tuesday and that "The Speaker has tasked committee chairs to reconcile differences with their GOP counterparts on key areas". "You know, it's her way or the highway; it's all or nothing".

Meadows said he and Mnuchin "had a number of very fruitful discussions over the last several days that give us a hope that we may be able to reach some kind of an agreement in the next 48 hours".

Republicans and Democrats have said they support another round of direct payments.

It's not clear that any deal struck by Mnuchin and Pelosi could even pass the Senate.

McConnell, in remarks to the Senate, excoriated Pelosi for what he said had been her "all or nothing" position on approving more coronavirus aid.

Asked if a compromise was to be had around the $2 trillion price range, McConnell said, "I don't think so, because my members - that's where the administration is willing to go - my members think what we laid out a half trillion dollars, highly targeted is the best way to go". Trump told reporters Monday that if a deal is reached "Republicans will come along", declining to say if he'd spoken with McConnell. On Tuesday, the Senate will take up a bill to replenish the small-business Paycheck Protection Program, and on Wednesday McConnell will try to advance an approximately $500 billion bill that includes money for schools, vaccines, some new unemployment insurance and more.

Most Senate Republicans are not in favor of a plan costing more than $500 billion, but Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, said he'd bring a bill to the floor if Pelosi and Mnuchin reach an agreement that is bipartisan.

"I'm going to give them one more opportunity to quit saying give us everything we want or nothing at all".

Meanwhile, the Tuesday deadline for lawmakers to agree on a deal is fast approaching but it now appears that a relief package is impossible ahead of the November 3rd elections.
