President Trump is headed to Capitol Hill this afternoon for a meeting with lawmakers about passing a payroll tax cut and help for hourly workers to blunt the economic fallout of the virus. Late last week a $8.5 billion emergency funding package was passed and signed into law. 

"We're also going to be talking about hourly wage earners getting help so that they can be in a position where they're not going to ever miss a paycheck. We'll be working with companies, small companies, large companies, a lot of companies so that they don't get penalized for something that's not their fault. It's not their fault, it's not our country's fault. This was something that we were thrown into and we're going to handle it, we have been handling it very well. The big decision was early when we shut down our borders," Trump said Tuesday night during a briefing from the White House.
