Donald Trump on Friday signed a bipartisan $2 trillion economic relief package for American workers, airlines, the unemployed, and small businesses that are impacted by the coronavirus pandemic that has forced some states to shut down. The bill passed easily even though Republican Rep. Thomas Massie pulled a stunt to interfere with the passage of the bill. Every Democrat was on board. Hours after it passed the House, Donald Trump signed the legislation and thanked Republicans and Democrats “for coming together, setting aside their differences and putting America first” with the legislation.
“We got hit by the invisible enemy, and we got hit hard,” Trump said during the signing ceremony. “I think we are going to have a tremendous rebound.”
The only problem is that no Democrats were invited to the event. That’s probably because Trump is an unrelenting piece of shit that can’t put grudges aside during a national crisis. It’s probably for the best since the image of the signing shows Republicans all crammed in together for the signing, and we’re sure they haven’t all been tested for COVID-19.
Twitter users blasted the petty, petulant, potentate.
So Trump has invited ZERO democrats to the signing ceremony for this 2 Trillion dollar bill!
His pettiness & vindictiveness knows no bounds RS

No democrats invited despite the fact they worked equally as hard.
And no social distancing.
Such fine examples. pic.twitter.com/JZ7JkK4q5B

President Trump signing the $2 trillion bill said, “I want to thank Democrats and Republicans for coming together and putting America first.”
(Reminder no Democrats attended the signing per the WH’s list.)

No Democrats were allowed at the White House for the signing ceremony.
With all the virus death going on across our country, how nice to know that the President of this country won’t allow that to stop him from his pettiness, childishness and vindictiveness👍

Trump, of course, just wants the signing to be all about him instead of the elected officials who worked hard to get it passed. Everything has to be about him. Always.
