President Donald Trump on Tuesday evening said he supports providing more aid for New York and other U.S. states in a fourth legislative response to the coronavirus crisis, as Washington starts to focus on its next package after reaching a deal on extending aid to small businesses.
His comments at the White House’s daily coronavirus briefing came after a meeting with Democratic New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo.
“We mentioned briefly the state aid, and we talked about that, Mr. Cuomo and myself,” Trump said. “I agree with him on that, and I think most Republicans agree, too, and Democrats. And that’s part of Phase 4, and I think infrastructure is going to be a big part — we have to rebuild our country.”
