White House Press Conference Quick Summary

Updated: Feb 10


Four executive orders were signed today:

  1. $400/week unemployment

  2. Moratorium on evictions

  3. Student Loan Relief

  4. Defer payroll tax payments from August 1 - this tax funds Social Security and Medicare benefits

Can Trump bypass the Congress?

  • By the Constitution, Trump does not have the legal authority to issue executive orders to determine how federal money is spent. So we'll see what happens.

When will this be implemented?

  • Trump says it will be "rapidly distributed" -- but as we know EDD has not been fast acting.

  • He also mentioned the possibility of Congress negotiating, which means the $400 is not guaranteed



Will I get backpay/retro pay?

  • Details are unknown. This will be updated if that changes.
