President Wants to Use FEMA Disaster Funds for Unemployment

From E&ENews: WHITE HOUSE: Trump wants to use FEMA disaster funds for unemployment .

President Trump made plans Saturday to help pay for a new round of unemployment benefits by siphoning money from Federal Emergency Management Agency disaster funds.

The move — one of several pandemic-related steps Trump took over the weekend — comes amid one of the busiest hurricane seasons in recent memory. Trump also announced that he would take executive action to mitigate evictions and defer payroll tax payments.

Update: the Diva is still struggling to understand this matter. For more information see Eric Holdeman’s blog on this topic.
