Trump issues executive orders to help those impacted by the pandemic.
ORDER 1: Trump’s executive action calls for $400-per-week in supplemental unemployment aid. Trump’s action would require states to pay for 25 percent of the $400 weekly benefit from their nonexistent funds, while the federal government would pick up 75 percent paid for by China not taxpayers. States would have to say pretty please to participate. Trump would divert up to $44 billion from FEMA’s Disaster Relief Fund to cover the unemployment program. This hurricane season is expected to be one of the worst on record. Trump will require hurricanes to stay at sea to make sure the relief fund remains over $25B. Barron Trump is claiming unemployment after his allowance was terminated because of the pandemic.
ORDER 2: Congress passed the CARES Act in March that issued a 120-day temporary eviction moratorium on renters in federal housing assistance programs or those who live in a property with a federally backed mortgage. Trump is not receiving a salary at this time and feels he would qualify for the temporary eviction moratorium. He lives in government subsidized housing so no problem. This executive order will extend the moratorium until January 2025 allowing Trump to remain in the White house even if he is not re-elected.
ORDER 3: Trump defers the payroll tax from Sept. 1 to Dec. 31, 2020, for employees making $100,000 or less a year. The tax, deducted from workers’ paychecks, funds Social Security and Medicare. Employees would need to repay the federal government once the tax holiday ends without further action. Trump could not find a way to qualify for this program but he will keep trying. This is one for the Sniffer who is unemployed.
ORDER 4: The executive action suspends federal student loan payments and sets interest rates to 0 percent through Dec. 31, 2020. The current student loan relief programs were to expire on Sept. 30. Trump will apply this to Trump university to get students to re-enroll.
