A White House economic adviser said Tuesday that the Trump administration is “studying very carefully” whether to provide another round of stimulus checks beyond the one-time, $1,200 direct payments, which he said could be part of a Phase 4 deal.
White House economic adviser Kevin Hassett told reporters on the White House driveway that those who qualify could receive another check.
“I think that’s something we’re studying very carefully,” he said. “It’s very likely there’ll be a phase-four deal and we’re going to be speaking with the president throughout the week about what he thinks should be in there, and I know that Senator [Mitch] McConnell and Speaker [Nancy] Pelosi are working on that as well,” Hassett said.
