the US President Donald trump said that he would support the acquisition of government shares in some us companies in connection with an outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19, writes Reuters.
On the question of whether he will support the acquisition of Federal government shares in some companies, trump said, “Yes. I really stand by.”
Speaking at a press conference at the White house on Thursday, trump said: “We will help the aviation industry. We will help the industry of the cruises. Probably, we will help the hospitality business.”
Requests for assistance in connection with the spread of the coronavirus in the form of direct grants, loans, loan guarantees and tax breaks exceeded $ 2 trillion. However, companies usually do not welcome government property for fear of losing control over his business.
Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on Thursday urged Congress to take steps to provide economic assistance in the amount of $ 1 trillion by early next week. He noted that government is focused on how to ensure the company’s liquidity.
Answering the question of whether there are sufficient incentives in a trillion dollars, trump said, “We learn about it later. Let’s see what will happen.”
this week, the US President signed the law on financial assistance to victims of the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19 in the amount of $ 100 billion.
Earlier, he sanctioned deferral of tax payments in the amount of $ 300 billion.
