Trump drafting order on coronavirus aid actions -tweet

WASHINGTON, Aug 6 – U.S. President Donald Trump, who has threatened to act unilaterally if Congress does not agree on further coronavirus aid, on Thursday said he is continuing work on an executive order targeting eviction protections and unemployment benefits.
