Saturday Bullet Points

  • Hurting Americans are desperate for financial relief in the form of additional COVID-19 stimulus.

Will there be an agreed-to plan? President Trump has weighed in on the subject. For complete details, click on this link:

  • It’s hard to believe that President Trump has bounced back so quickly from his COVID-19 infection.
