White House makes new stimulus offer as political wrangling continues

Description

The White House has made a new offer of government stimulus for the US economy, as Democrat and Republican lawmakers continue to negotiate over the much-needed aid. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin outlined a package worth $918 billion, which includes direct payments of $600 to Americans, but not extending extra unemployment benefits that expired in July. Leading Democrats gave the proposal a frosty reception. Also today, we look at plans from Australia's government to make digital giants Google and Facebook pay news organisations for displaying their journalism.

  • As Doors Slam All Around Him, Trump Spends Election Run-Up Ranting On Fox News

    US President Donald Trump appears to be running out of lifelines to save himself politically. CNN reports Trump had hoped a range of pivotal events would turn the electoral tide in his direction, but they're vanishing as quickly as Halloween candy. A coronavirus vaccine hasn't been created. Nor has a massive stimulus package materialized. And the investigation into the Clinton Foundation was a bust. So the president has taken to dialing Fox hosts from the White House and ripping his senior-most Cabinet members for not delivering before election day. It's an unfamiliar experience for a man used to getting what he wants. He is in a completely different universe right now where nobody is left, really, to help him out of the jams he keeps getting himself into.
