As a result of the pandemic, tens of millions of Americans are facing economic desperation. They can't afford to pay their rent and face eviction, they can't afford to go to the doctor, they can't afford to feed their children and they are going deeper and deeper into debt.

Trump said months ago he would sign a bill that extended unemployment benefits and included another stimulus check, as long as that's all the bill was.  He didn't want all the other crap included.   Congress did nothing since July on covid relief.   Why would they need his encouragement?  Now they pass a bill at the last minute that is woefully inadequate,  and somehow Trump is wrong for being critical of it.

He is right to be critical and the bill isn't clean.  But he didn't hold meetings with McConnell or others or send Pence to work with them in reaching something everybody could live with because he was too immersed with his election fraud thing.  So it's no surprise that Republicans aren't on the same page with each other and Trump ended up threatening to veto.  McConnell was resisting any sizeable relief for individuals all along and tried to load up on benefits for corporations.  Everybody knew that for months but the White House remained silent until the cow was just about in the barn.
