US top Democrats knock Trump’s COVID-19 relief measures

U.S. President Donald Trump’s executive actions on COVID-19 relief have come under the knocks of top Democrats.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi slammed the measures as “absurdly unconstitutional” and “way off base.”
The measures, which Trump signed on Saturday, sidestepping Congress after lawmakers failed to reach a deal on Friday, provide an additional $400 per week unemployment benefits among other relief measures such as a temporary payroll tax cut.
