Trump signed the 2021 budget with economic support measures because of the pandemic

U.S. President Donald Trump signed the budget for 2021, which includes the allocation of 900 billion in economic aid due to the pandemic COVID-19.

The fact that the bill was approved was reported by White House Deputy Press Secretary Judd Dear on his Twitter page on December 27.

“President Donald Trump signed H.R. 133, the budget appropriations bill for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30, 2021,” the tweet said.

The U.S. leader had previously refused to sign the document.

Trump called the budget passed by Congress a few days ago a “disgrace” and expressed confidence that Congress had not even read it. The American leader opposed the allocation of economic aid to other countries. In addition, he does not consider it necessary to support theaters, museums and environmental programs. Trump also said that if Congress does not go along with him, the economic aid package will be taken by another administration.

Nevertheless, as a result, the U.S. president was still able to convince him to sign the bill.
