While Congress debates whether or not to extend the $600 per week federal unemployment benefits, President Trump is making it clear that he wants it to continue.

In an interview with Gray Television, Trump agreed with extending the benefits for those left unemployed by the pandemic, saying "I want to get them a lot... it's not their fault, it's China's fault that this whole thing happened."

On this issue, Trump is siding with House Democrats, who also want to extend the benefits. Senate Republicans have proposed cutting them to $200 a week.
