President Trump and his administration have been attempting to put together a stimulus deal with the Democrats.
The problem is the Democrats won’t compromise on their ridiculous wishlist.
Well Chris Wallace from Fox News had some scathing questions for Pelosi.
He even asked her at one point if she had messed up the deal!
Check out the exchange below:
The Blaze has more details on Wallace's interview with Pelosi:
Chris Wallace, host of "Fox News Sunday," grilled House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday, not letting her forget that Democrats are responsible for President Donald Trump taking action to provide Americans with coronavirus-related economic relief.
After two weeks of negotiations, the White House and Democrats failed to agree on a second COVID-related economic relief bill. The president responded on Saturday by signing executive orders providing Americans with temporary relief.
The executive action included a $400 supplemental unemployment stipend, deferred payroll taxes for certain Americas, extended the federal eviction moratorium, and further deferred student loans payments.
As TheBlaze reported, Democrats responded by threatening to take legal action against the president, who said he only acted because Democrats had brought unreasonable demands to the negotiation table.
During a lengthy interview with Wallace, Pelosi claimed that Trump's action merely provides the "illusion" of assistance.
But Wallace called her out, noting that Democrats' failure to compromise meant that Americans will not receive any of the help that they need.
"You're known as a master negotiator, but didn't you mess this one up?" Wallace asked. "You knew that the president was threatening to take this executive action. I understand that you weren't going to get everything you wanted and didn't get everything you wanted, but should you have cut a deal?"
Pelosi, clearly upset by Wallace's question, responded by claiming Wallace "clearly" did not "have an understanding of what is happening."
Check out some of the responses on Twitter to Pelosi's appearance:
Pelosi is certainly partially responsible for bungling the deal on the stimulus package.
Trump and Republicans were even willing to compromise on terms like enhanced unemployment benefits and direct funding to states.
But Democrats would rather act like spoiled children and demand everything under the sun!
Perhaps Pelosi realizes that the American public doesn't like what they see when they look at the Democrats.
And maybe that's why Fox News reports that Pelosi and Schumer are seeking a deal with President Trump:
President Trump said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi "want to meet to make a deal" on the fourth coronavirus stimulus package, after negotiations between congressional lawmakers and the White House reached a stalemate over the weekend.
"So now Schumer and Pelosi want to meet to make a deal," the president tweeted Monday. "Amazing how it all works, isn't it."
"Where have they been for the last 4 weeks when they were 'hardliners', and only wanted BAILOUT MONEY for Democrat run states and cities that are failing badly?" Trump continued, adding, "They know my phone number!"
The president’s tweet comes after he signed four executive actions over the weekend to provide Americans financial relief from the ongoing pandemic, after Republicans and Democrats on Capitol Hill failed to reach an agreement on what to include in the fourth stimulus package.
The executive actions included $400 per week in supplemental unemployment aid — a replacement of the program passed under the CARES Act earlier this year that gave unemployed people $600 a week extra until the federal program expired at the end of July.
The action would require states to pay for 25 percent of the $400 weekly benefit, while the federal government would pick up 75 percent.
The $400 payment to unemployed Americans came as Republicans on Capitol Hill argued that the initial unemployment insurance program disincentivized Americans to get back to work, with many collecting more money unemployed than employed. Republicans pushed for the program to be reduced to $200 per week, while Democrats argued the program should be renewed at the original $600 a week.
The president also signed executive actions that would encourage federal efforts to help renters and homeowners avoid eviction or foreclosure for failing to make their monthly payments; defer the payroll tax from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31, 2020, for employees making $100,000 or less a year; and suspend federal student loan payments and set interest rates to 0% through Dec. 31, 2020 — the current student loan relief program was set to expire on Sept. 30.
