President Donald Trump on Saturday circumvented Congress and took action on his own after weeks of unsuccessful negotiations over another coronavirus relief package on Capitol Hill.

He signed three presidential memoranda and an executive order, at his private golf club in Bedminster, N.J. Trump would provide $300 per week in federal unemployment assistance with another $100 a week kicked in by states, consider temporarily stopping residential evictions, pause federal student loan payments and defer payroll taxes.
