President Trump on Tuesday broke off negotiations with Democrats on another coronavirus relief deal until after the Nov. 3 election, rejecting the party's latest $2.2 trillion proposal.

“I have instructed my representatives to stop negotiating until after the election when, immediately after I win, we will pass a major Stimulus Bill that focuses on hardworking Americans and Small Business,” Trump tweeted, one day after returning to the White House from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he was being treated for COVID-19.
