President Donald Trump on Thursday said he’s told Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, who has been negotiating with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on another coronavirus aid package, that the White House’s offer could go above its previous level of $1.8 trillion. “I’ve told him. So far he hasn’t come home with the bacon,” Trump said on Fox Business. The president also said he thinks there’s a chance for a stimulus deal before the election, even as analysts say that’s unlikely.
