Trump says he might not sign coronavirus bill without payroll tax cut

President Trump said Sunday that he would consider not signing an upcoming coronavirus relief package if it doesn’t include a payroll tax cut.

“I’ll have to see, but yeah, I would consider not signing it if we don’t have a payroll tax cut,” Trump told Fox News’s Chris Wallace in an interview that aired Sunday.

The president insisted that “a lot of Republicans” are in favor of a payroll tax holiday, though some Republicans have been cool to the proposal since Trump floated it earlier this year. Democrats have opposed the idea of a payroll tax cut.

Trump has previously said he wants to see a payroll tax cut in the next coronavirus relief bill, and the White House suggested last week that the measure was non-negotiable.
