Pelosi made clear to reporters after the call that negotiations over the next coronavirus relief legislation won't start again in earnest until the White House comes up on its topline offer, saying that there's "no reason" to continue talks until the Trump administration moves.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Democrats and the White House still have outstanding differences over how much to spend on the next COVID-19 relief bill. Democratic leaders proposed boiling down $1 trillion if Republicans showed up $1 trillion, nevertheless, that deal ... "What did we get from her is 25 minutes of nothing", he said. "How they can nickel and dime the kids is something I find hard to understand".

Meadows told Politico in an interview Tuesday he is "not optimistic" the two sides will be able to reach a deal on the next aid package before the end of September and predicted Pelosi will attempt to use a must-pass government spending bill as leverage in negotiations.

During her Republican National Convention speech on Wednesday night, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany shared that when she was 21, her doctor let her know that she had tested positive for the BRCA2 gene mutation, giving her a much higher risk of developing breast cancer.

The talks broke down on August 7, with the sides far apart on major issues including the size of unemployment benefits for tens of millions of people made jobless by the pandemic, aid for state and local governments and funding for schools and food support programs. The White House team rejected the compromise, causing the talks to break down.

White House officials did not immediately elaborate on how the tests will be distributed or offer details on other logistics. About has said it will be able to produce 50 million tests every month by October.

The impasse comes amid increased uncertainty about the state of the USA economy as the pandemic continues to spread throughout the country. Initial jobless claims in regular state programs were 1.01 million in the week ended August 22, the second straight week above 1 million, Labor Department data showed Thursday.

US airlines have warned that massive layoffs will be coming without further aid during the pandemic.

"But we can't go any less because we have to meet the needs of the American people. We need to support them", Powell said Thursday at a virtual iteration of the Kansas City Fed's annual Jackson Hole conference.

Senate Republicans continue to refine a slimmed-down stimulus proposal with $300 per week in unemployment benefits but without the $1,200 direct stimulus payments for most people - which both Trump and Pelosi have favored.
