WASHINGTON, DC ( fate of the Federal government's $2.3 trillion spending package that includes $900 billion for Covid economic relief plus the $1.4 trillion omnibus spending bill for the annual federal budget is still up in the air. President Trump has  threatened to veto the Bill and has asked Congress to give Americans a $2000 per person cash benefit.

“I am asking Congress to amend this bill and increase the ridiculously low $600 to $2,000 or $4,000 for a couple. I’m also asking Congress to immediately get rid of the wasteful and unnecessary items from this legislation and to send me a suitable bill or else the next administration will have to deliver a Covid relief package,” Trump said from the White House on Dec. 22.

President Trump cited the following among the items as wasteful:

  • $85.5 million for assistance to Cambodia, $134 million to Burma, $1.3 billion for Egypt and the Egyptian military, which will go out and buy almost exclusively Russian military equipment


  • $25 million for democracy and gender programs in Pakistan


  • $505 million to Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama 


  • $40 million for the Kennedy Center in Washington, DC, which is not even open for business


  • $1 billion for the Smithsonian and an additional $154 million for the National Gallery of Art.


  • $7 million for reef fish management


  • $25 billion to combat Asian carp, $2.5 million to count the number of amberjack fish in the Gulf of Mexico


  • A provision to promote the breeding of fish in federal hatcheries


  • $3 million in poultry production technology,


  • $2 million to research the impact of down trees


  • $566 million for construction projects at the FBI


  • The bill also allows stimulus checks for the family members of illegal aliens, allowing them to get up to $1,800 each
