BREAKING: President Trump signs Executive Order to extend unemployment benefits

At an afternoon White House press conference today, President Trump made the surprise announcement that he would be signing an Executive Order to extend benefits to the unemployed.

Those making less than $100,000 a year and who are still unemployed due to the pandemic can qualify for an additional $400 per week.

25% of the unemployment benefits will be paid by the states while the other 75% will be carried by the Federal Government.

This announcement comes today after a whole week has gone by since unemployment benefits ended and no new deal had been reached as of yet.
