SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:"We've been negotiating in good faith with Democrat leaders in the House to extend relief payments. We're negotiating right now as we speak and we'll see how that works out. But if Democrat leaders put partisan demands aside, we would reach an agreement very quickly."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++2. SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:"In the meantime, my administration is exploring executive actions to provide protections against eviction, evictions, a big problem, very unfair to a lot of people. It wasn't their fault that this virus came from a faraway land, as well as additional relief to those who are unemployed as a result of the virus."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++3. SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:" Very importantly, I'm also looking at a term limited suspension of the payroll tax, something that has great support from many, many sides, especially some of our top economists and some people that we have great respect for."++SEPARATED BY WHITE FLASH++4. SOUNDBITE (English) President Donald Trump:"The Democrats are primarily interested in a one trillion dollar bailout of the poorly run states. We have some states and cities, you know them all  where not to go through names, but they've been very poorly run over the years. And we can't go along with the bailout money. We're not going to go along with it, especially since it's not COVID related."++ENDS ON SOUNDBITE++STORYLINE: President Donald Trump is threatening an executive actions if deal isn't reach with Democrats on a new relief package.This comes after more than a week’s worth of meetings and no COVID-19 response bill. An exchange of offers was made Tuesday and a meeting devoted to the U.S. Postal Service on Wednesday indicates a long slog remains, but the White House is offering some movement in House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s direction on aid to states and local governments and unemployment insurance benefits. Multiple issues remain, but some areas of likely agreement are coming into focus.Pelosi is staking out a hard line on extending a $600-per-week supplemental pandemic federal jobless benefit, which lapsed last week. Republicans reportedly offered to extend the benefit into December and cut it to $400.Similarly, the White House has offered Democrats $150 billion in new appropriations to help state and local governments alleviate revenue losses from the damage the coronavirus has wrought on the economy. That matches the amount appropriated after a huge behind-the-scenes battle during negotiations on the bipartisan $2 trillion coronavirus bill that passed in March. Much of that original money is left over, and all sides want greater flexibility in using it, but Pelosi is demanding far more, almost $1 trillion. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., continues to insist that the legislation include some sort of liability shield against lawsuits brought against businesses, schools and universities, and charities that operate during the pandemic. Pelosi is opposed for now, but Democrats - who see it's a key to any final agreement - aren't ruling the idea out. The competing bills from House Democrats and Senate Republicans include a fair amount of money for non-coronavirus-related items. The Senate proposal contains an almost $2 billion new FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., and $30 billion for the Pentagon.===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
