President Trump kept the big picture in mind when he and Congress worked to pass the most recent funding bill for small businesses. That big picture starts with the economy and maintaining the autonomy of the people who make it thrive. But Democrats could not help but exploit the politics; the bill would have been passed sooner if they had not held it hostage to their demands for local and states’ funds.
Donald Trump supported the protests in Michigan against the extension of the state emergency instituted by Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Trump recognized that this action is government overreach over individual rights. Whitmer stated that the extension would contain COV-19. However, it’s also worth noting that this is a tacit political play meant to boost Democratic support in a key battleground state for Trump and the Democratic nominee.
