In an interview with CNBC’s Squawk on the Street on Monday, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said that President Donald Trump was ‘determined to spend what we need to spend’.
Mnuchin added: ‘We were prepared to put more money on the table.
Lawmakers have been hoping to reach an agreement for the coronavirus bailout package last Friday since their scheduled break started August 10 and will run through September 8. .
But Mnuchin says he’s willing to revisit the bailout package discussions this week.
“If we can reach a fair deal, we are ready to do it this week,” said Mnuchin, noting that he has not spoken to Democratic lawmakers since Friday.
With no deal on coronavirus bailout law, Trump attacked Democratic leaders negotiating with his top aides over the weekend and threatened to act unilaterally to cut payroll taxes and perform other actions.
‘If Democrats continue to hold this important relief hostage, I will act under my authority as president,’ Trump said, continuing the attacks on Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Lanh Senate Minority Charles Schumer, when the two sides are still trillions of dollars apart on aid.
He also repeated his claim that the coronavirus that wreaked havoc on the country would disappear – even as the number of coronavirus deaths in the US reached 160,000.

Trump says the virus’ is disappearing. It will disappear. ”
The president has outlined new details on an executive order he is considering – without clearly expressing the authority he will invoke to do so. But the president did not immediately say that he would do so.
“What we are talking about is deferring the payroll tax over a period of several months,” the president said during a so-called hasty press conference at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey.
The pay tax, he said, will be ‘in effect until the end of the year’ and with a retroactive effect until July, which could indicate a cut in the short term.
Trump has also said he will act on an ‘enhanced unemployment benefit’ – even as negotiators have postponed the $ 600 weekly benefit expansion.
