Pres. Trump moves to blunt coronavirus' heavy impact on US economy

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - Ahead of an expected surge in coronavirus cases, President Donald Trump is moving to blunt the impact of the pandemic on the U.S. economy, fundamentally altered by a push for a nation to stay home.

As the global markets fluctuated amid fears of a recession, the president conferred with tourism executives as well as restaurant leaders, retailers and suppliers.

His administration is expected to propose a roughly $850 billion emergency economic stimulus to address the free-fall while considering checks to American workers trying to make their way in an economy deeply unsettled by the outbreak.
