Pelosi, Mnuchin signal openness to resume aid talks

[NFA] U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged a restart of congressional talks on extending coronavirus aid, saying executive actions taken by President Donald Trump a day earlier would have little immediate impact on Americans facing economic distress amid the pandemic.

U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday urged for talks to restart on extending coronavirus aid, a day after President Donald Trump sidestepped Congress and took executive actions.

Trump: ''We've had it and we are going to save American jobs and provide relief to the American workers.'' Talks over aid - that would provide financial relief to Americans struggling amid a pandemic-battered economy - collapsed on Capitol Hill this week between Democratic lawmakers led by Pelosi and Senate Minority leader Chick Schumer, and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.

Pelosi told Fox News the president's executive orders were 'illusions' rather than lasting solutions and said a deal between congressional Democrats and the White House was still needed.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, meanwhile, left the door open to further talks, saying he would consider any new proposal from Democrats and suggested a compromise on areas of agreement such as food assistance.

Both sides appeared willing to consider a shorter-term deal that would extend aid until the end of 2020.

Mnuchin told Fox News “We don’t have to get everything done at once... What we should do is get things done for the American public now, come back for another bill afterwards.”

Members of the Indian, Vietnamese and the Tibetan communities held a protest outside the Capitol Hill in Washington against China. The protesters were holding anti-China posters, urging people to boycott Chinese products. They shouted slogans against China's expansionist policies against their neighbours. Posters urging China to vacate Akshai Chin and Kashmir were also seen during the protest. Since the Galwan standoff between India and China, anti-China protests have broken out in several cities in the United States. 'China is aggressively trying to steal the land from India in Ladakh, Arunachal Pradesh. They are intimidating Bhutan. They have also claimed that the Tajikistan mountains belong to them. Vietnam, Malaysia, Japan, Russia are also victims of China's expansionist policies', said a protester Adapa Prasad. Members of Vietnamese community also lashed out against the Communist government of China and said that their fight is against the CCP and not the people of China. China's expansionist policy has been slammed by countries across the world. China also faced flak for the Galwan faceoff where 20 India jawans were killed. Watch the full video for all the details.
