Dear Jim: Pork Spending Bill

At first I was confused about Trump's signing of the porkulus spending bill HR 133. Then I read the 3 White House posts explaining in legalese that Trump was immediately locking the release of the funds while pushing for larger $2000 stimulus checks.


2 Trump Letters to Congress locks up funding (for 45 days):

Another Trump Statement demands Congress increase stimulus checks:

It's sad that the best plain English explanation I've read is at that Chinese dissident news site, "Signing H.R. 133 Could Give President Trump More Negotiation Power":

No mention about that clause nullifying of the Insurrection Act reported earlier so I assume it's gone. If not Trump will have to act FAST.
