The executive actions will provide a payroll tax holiday, and unemployment checks to American families who need it. Trump also signed an extension of the moratorium on evictions, as well as deferred student loan payments.
President Trump took Pelosi and Schumer to the cleaners. Trump was forced to sign these executive orders because the Democrats refused to negotiate a fair deal. They wanted a bill that was full of Liberal pork. Trump rightfully said no.
Now Trump is forcing the Dems to sue him to stop these executive orders. How will suing the POTUS to prevent evictions, and tax relief, and unemployment checks for the American people work out for the Dems in November? Not well. Trump may have sealed his re-election today.

Donald Trump Signs Executive Order: Payroll Tax Holiday, Enhanced Unemployment Checks
By Breitbart, August 8, 2020
President Donald Trump signed an executive order for a payroll tax holiday at his club in Bedminster, New Jersey on Saturday.
“The very important thing is that people want it and the people needed, actually,” Trump said, noting that Republicans and Democrats in Congress could not reach a deal.
The president said that the payroll tax holiday would apply to Americans earning less than $100,000 a year.
“If I am victorious on November 3rd, I plan to forgive these taxes and make permanent cuts to the payroll tax,” he said.
Trump added that he might even “terminate” the tax or make permanent changes. A group of supporters joined the president at his press conference announcing the news and cheered as the president signed the orders.
“Biden probably won’t be doing that. You’ll have to ask him. I don’t think he knows what he’s doing,” he said, as his supporters chuckled.
The president also said he would provide a federal unemployment enhancement of $400 per week, but that states would pay for 25 percent of the cost. He also signed an extension of the moratorium on evictions and deferred student loan payments.
Trump said he had to act on his own after negotiations with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer ground to a halt.
“The Democrats have obstructed people from getting desperately needed help,” Trump said.
The president said he would find ways to use existing funds already passed by Congress for coronavirus relief to help Americans fight the virus and the economic struggles from the lockdowns.
“We have the money to do a lot of things, money that was unspent, and we would do a lot of things with the money that was unspent,” he said.
