The president of the United States, Joe Biden, has shown his rejection of his rival in the elections, former President Donald Trump, receiving intelligence reports as is customary for former United States leaders. In a preview of an interview that will be published next Sunday, Biden has been against this, due to the “erratic behavior” of Trump and because he will not add any value to what is exposed in these reports.
I don’t want to speculate but I don’t think I need to have those intelligence reports. What value is he going to give, what impact will it have on him beyond the fact that something may escape him, stressed Biden.The president has reaffirmed himself in all his criticisms of his political rival but has avoided commenting on whether he would vote in favor of condemning Trump in the “impeachment” that begins next week.
The US president has also lamented that the increase in the minimum wage at the federal level proposed by his government has little sign of lasting in the negotiation in the Senate, despite the support of the majority of Democrats. I do not think it will survive,” lamented Biden, who has assured that he will begin a negotiation with representatives to carry out this measure that would entail a minimum fee of $ 15 an hour (approximately 12.4 euros) for each American.
One of the main criticisms received of the proposal was that the Republicans did not see it appropriate to raise the minimum wage in the middle of a pandemic. The US president has argued that after the rise, the entire economy would improve. The economic package to revitalize the economy passed its first stumbling block in the Senate during the early hours of Friday with the support of all Democratic senators and the tiebreaker vote of the president of the institution, Kamala Harris.
Despite the intention of the new Government and was to approve an economic stimulus with bipartisan support, the negotiations between representatives of both parties proposed a very different size.The proposal that has reached the House is that of a package of 1.9 billion dollars (1.56 billion euros) that would include checks for 1,400 dollars (1,161 euros) for Americans who earned less than 75,000 dollars (62,244 euros), one of the great Democratic promises.
