Former Missouri Senator Claire McCaskill SLAMS Stimulus Trump Check Signature
Check the Show-Me State angle as federal stimulus checks for millions of Americans will be delayed by several days because President Donald Trump wanted his signature to be on them, the Washington Post reported late Tuesday.
From Raw Story offers a perspective from a longtime local politico and current power player pundit:
Former Senator Claire McCaskill (D-MO) pummeled Donald Trump for forcing the Treasury to hold up sending out the desperately-needed $1200 stimulus checks to taxpayers so his name could be printed on the memo line.
According to the former lawmaker, Trump’s self-promoting maneuver is going to infuriate exactly the voters he needs if he has any hope of being re-elected
“He’s delaying the needed money by these people for an ego exercise,” she added. “That really — and that’s going to break through to those suburban voters. That’s what turns them off on Donald Trump. That’s what turns them toward calm, not chaos, which Joe Biden represents.”
