Transcript forTrump on ABC News town hall: Trump on economic relief if there’s second COVID-19 wave

The next question comes from lea of Pittsburgh. Hello. Hi. I worry about a second or third wave of unemployment. Employers that weathered the first six months of covid-19 are now seeing their businesses dramatically impacted due to the effect of this virus on our economy. What as president is your plan to aid these workers who may not lose their jobs today, but in the months to come? Well, as you know, we did paycheck, but we’re doing a lot of other things, but what I want to do is see some additional stimulus, and we’re trying to get it. And we may. I mean, just before I came here, we had some pretty good talks with the Democrats, we’ll see. But they’ve been very difficult. Why not call the speaker down to your office? Because they know where I stand. At the right time, I’ll do that, but they know where I stand. What they want is a bailout of democrat-run states that have doing poorly. And, you know, I don’t think this is the — Why do you keep talking about democratic states? They’re American states. Democrat-run states are the ones that are doing badly, George.

I don’t want to say — look, I’m the president of everybody, but I don’t want to say it. But they’re democrat-run cities. So, will you be calling the speaker in? At the right time, yes. I would like to see additional stimulus for people that really — it wasn’t their fault, wasn’t your fault, wasn’t anybody’s fault. It was China’s fault. I don’t care how you want to define it. This was China’s fault. And our people shouldn’t be hurt. And we should do stimulus. We did a lot of it initially and now they stopped because they think it’s going to be better for the election. They say if you’ll come up — they said they’ll meet you halfway on the money. Well, we can do something maybe, but I’m just hearing for the first time about an hour ago that maybe there is a chance to get something and I’d like to do it. I would like to see it happen, Next question is on health
