Trump has signed a decree on benefits to the unemployed to bypass Congress

President of the United States Donald trump at the weekend signed a decree on partial recovery of additional payments for unemployment benefits, reports Bloomberg.

Payments will receive tens of millions of US residents who were left without work due to the coronavirus. According to the document, the size of the weekly payment will be $400. 75% going to Fund the Federal government, 25% — state governments.

the Decree was signed for the extension of economic support measures to bypass Congress, where Democrats and Republicans can’t agree on the terms of the new program to stimulate the economy. The Agency notes that signing of the decree may be for the President to trump the legal implications, since under the Constitution, government expenditures are the responsibility of the Congress.
