President Donald Trump is offering more unemployment aid to millions of jobless Americans.
White House economic advisor Larry Kudlow said Tuesday it will take “about two weeks” for people to receive the federal help.
But Americans will likely wait longer, perhaps more than a month, for that money to arrive — if it comes at all, labor experts said, as it would require states to tweak their unemployment systems to handle what amounts to a new benefit.
