Congress passed a virus relief bill consisting of billions of dollars. One problem. Wealthy companies with less than 500 employees could have their attorneys step up to the trough and take their big bite. They trampled over the little businesses the bill was supposed to help survive, and all of the money was gone in a week. Now, Congress is passing another bill of nearly half a trillion dollars bill. One problem.
A person might think Congress would learn from its mistake. Donald Trump pointed out how he made Harvard return the money it had taken and clearly did not need. Yet, he did not ask the financial companies to do the same.
Then, the commander-in-chief had his vice president and former 2016 presidential campaign manager compliment him:
‘Yesterday, I had the privilege of visiting @GEHealthcare in Wisconsin to see American industry and American workers at their very best. Under President @realDonaldTrump’s leadership and because of the hard work of the American people, we will have 110,000 ventilators in 100 days.’

‘.@foxandfriends We now have many Ventilators to spare. Thank you to all!’
‘Thank you to Harvard and all others!’
‘Thank you @realDonaldTrump for forcing Harvard to return the money. I never get tired of winning!’
‘Harvard should Immediately FREEZE tuition for three years if they accept Taxpayer money. This is shameful. I mean they ONLY have $40 Billion to draw from.’
Twitter world. went crazy after Trump sent out additional tweets about universities taking relief money and about what a great job he has done with the pandemic. Check out our favorites below:
