Trump says he’ll take executive action on payroll taxes, unemployment benefits if Dems won’t bargain

President Trump said Friday night that he’ll take executive action to extend federal unemployment benefits, defer payroll taxes and other steps if congressional Democratic leaders continue to hold coronavirus relief hostage to their “radical left-wing” demands.

As he has for the past week, Mr. Trump said he is ready to take executive action to declare a moratorium on evictions in federally backed housing, suspend student loan payments, extend federal unemployment benefits and defer payroll taxes through the end of the year, retroactive to July 1.
