Breaking: Senate Dems Stall Trump’s $250 Billion Small Business Relief Package, Demand Targeting for Minority-Owned Businesses

Senate Democrats on Thursday stalled the passage of a $250 billion relief package for small businesses backed by President Trump.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R., Kent.) attempted to speed up the bill’s passage by calling for a vote by unanimous consent, but was blocked by Democrats who requested protections for minority-owned businesses and additional aid to local health care providers.

“Do not block emergency aid you do not oppose just because you want something more,” McConnell said at the opening of Thursday’s Senate session.

Republicans intended the $250 billion as an addition to the Paycheck Protection Program, which gives forgivable loans to small businesses. That program is currently worth $350 billion.
