WASHINGTON — Negotiations between top Democrats and the Trump administration on a coronavirus relief package have hit a standstill, guaranteeing that millions of people will lose critical unemployment benefits Friday — with no clear path ahead for a new aid package.
The negotiations were in a tenuous place, as the administration and the Democrats remained miles apart on a litany of issues. Further complicating the talks: Senate Republicans were not in agreement with the White House on the core issues of liability protection and an evictions moratorium.
The article goes on to state the following:
Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows offered to extend the $600-per-week federal benefit in unemployment insurance for one additional week, according to three people familiar with the negotiations.

“Let’s say that the path that they have taken us down with their delay, their denial, their distortions have caused death — speaking alliteratively — has caused deaths unnecessarily,” Pelosi told reporters Friday.
