United States Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (pictured) said on Tuesday that the negotiations on the coronavirus relief package between the Democratic Party and the White House are at "a stalemate."

In an interview with Fox News, McConnell stated: "The stalemate needs to be ended. We ought to meet together again." He added that Trump administration's negotiators haven't met with Congress democrats since Friday, noting that the period is "too long," and stressing that it's the time "to meet and get it done."

Earlier today, National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow revealed that the Federal Government will pay $300 per week in emergency unemployment funds and that the obligatory states' participation of 25% will be shelved.
