Donald Trump Denies His Support For Migrants

United States President Donald Trump refused to provide financial aid to undocumented migrants as part of his stimulus plan for the economy due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

“When you say undocumented it means they came illegally,” Trump responded to a reporter’s question about the situation of migrants in the US during the pandemic.



“What can we do? It is hard. It is a very sad question, but they arrived illegally and we have many citizens who will not have a job. ”

However, the president said they were working on something to resolve the situation.

“It is a very sad situation and we are working on it. I am not going to give you a hard and quick answer because it is something that I have been thinking about and are working on, ”he added.

Trump enacted a $ 2.2 trillion plan th at seeks to provide economic support to Americans to alleviate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the economy.

The plan will give citizens a cash payment of at least 1,200 dollars. It also includes business aid, loans and other incentives.

For his part, billionaire Bill Gates called for a national closure due to the Covid-19 pandemic as a measure to stop the spread in the United States and urged the authorities to act quickly.

In an opinion piece in The Washington Post, Gates said that while the initial response had been slow, the government could still take three steps.

“First, we need an approach to a national closure,” Gates said, arguing that despite decrees, people were still on the streets and that the measures were differentiated in various regions. “The country’s leaders must be clear: if you stop in one place, you must stop everywhere (…). Business cannot continue as before. “

The businessman also called for the administration to increase the number of tests being carried out across the US and to speed up investigations to find effective treatments and an eventual vaccine.
