The U.S. Treasury has announced that it will send out prepaid debit cards for virus relief funds. Showcasing the card at the Tuesday cabinet meaning, Secretary Steve Mnuchin revealed that the treasury card will feature President Donald Trump’s name on it. Trump isn’t paying the funds and they aren’t coming from his bank account, rather they’re coming from the U.S. Treasury.

Prepaid debit cards are secure, easy to use, and allow us to deliver Americans their money quickly. Recipients can immediately activate and use the cards safely,” Mnuchin revealed in a statement earlier Tuesday.

Thus far about 140 million Americans have gotten their relief payments from the government, for a total of $239 billion. Most of the payments came through direct deposits using past tax return information or social security payments. If the IRS doesn’t have the information paper checks were sent. Some benefit recipients will get their payments through the debit card, however.

While Trump’s signature wasn’t what appeared on the paper checks, they put his name in the memo line.

An estimated 4 million Americans will get the “Trump debit card.”

‘Turned his back on America’: MSNBC’s Morning Joe and Mika bash Trump for his ‘incredible shrinking act’ as the country burns

Published

MSNBC's Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski bashed President Donald Trump's glaring lack of leadership as protests consume the U.S., and presidential historian Jon Meacham said he's acting as if he'd already given up his duties.

The "Morning Joe" co-hosts were astonished that Trump spent the weekend tweeting incendiary comments instead of addressing the protesters' concerns, and they agreed that he had shrunk from the coronavirus and racism crises engulfing the nation.

"It's sort of two things going on," Brezezinski said, "this sort of sowing fear and hate and sowing the violence on Twitter, and, yet, a lot of people felt during the moment at the Rose Garden on Friday, when he chose not to speak about George Floyd and everything that was going on, and he turned around and walked away, turned his back on America, the questions started popping up. Is he afraid to do anything? What is holding him back?"

In analyzing a new round of polls on the 2020 presidential race, Enten writes that Biden's lead over Trump has been stronger and steadier than any lead of a challenger over an incumbent president.

"There were more than 40 national public polls taken at least partially in the month of May that asked about the Biden-Trump matchup," he writes. "Biden led in every single one of them. He's the first challenger to be ahead of the incumbent in every May poll since Jimmy Carter did so in 1976."
