AAt the end of the day, Donald Trump signed on Sunday evening what he had called a “shame” on Tuesday – the corona aid package that had been negotiated by Congress and the government for many months. In a whole series of angry tweets, Trump had raised the mood against the $ 900 billion (around 740 billion euros) corona aid package from his home in Mar-a-Lago (Florida) over Christmas.
For days, the incumbent president, who has to move out of the White House in three weeks, presented his own finance minister. The party friends in Congress, who had passed the aid package with an unusually broad bipartisan majority, were also indirectly attacked by Trump.
After his sudden 180-degree turn, Trump threatens another defeat on Monday.
