With Trump's surprise support for $2,000 stimulus checks, Democratic leadership and the progressive wing of the party have rallied in support of the amendment.
Many representatives, including Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, have been calling for $2,000 stimulus checks since the spring, and are piling pressure on Mitch McConnell to make it happen.
Democratic members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus reacted positively to Trump's call for $2,000 stimulus checks, a sum that several progressive members began advocating for in March.
@RashidaTlaib and I already co-wrote the COVID amendment for $2,000 checks, so it's ready to go.
Ocasio-Cortez called for $2,000 stimulus checks when the pandemic began in March and reiterated that call last week.
