(Noted News) — This weekend, President Trump took executive action designed to provide the relief Democrats have denied to those who need it most. Through four executive orders, he took the following steps:
On the payroll tax, he deferred payments of the employee portion of certain payroll taxes from September 1st through the end of 2020.
On unemployment assistance, states will provide 25 percent cost sharing, amounting to a total of $400 per week in benefits through the end of the year.
And then, third, he extended the eviction protections. President Trump will direct HUD to prevent evictions resulting from financial hardships caused by the virus, doing everything in his executive capacity to make sure those renting and those homeowners are protected.
Finally, on student loans, he extended 0 percent interest and suspended loan payments through the end of the year.
