Last month I wrote about President Trump’s promise to send out stimulus to all Americans. Today I found out that at least one of my relatives saw a deposit in his account.
The bottom line is this: he actually made a promise he kept. That’s astounding.
But I will say that at the time he promised the checks would go out in two weeks. He made the promise on March 17th and two weeks out was March 31st. That was more than two weeks ago. Also the first wave of checks were made through direct deposit, meaning the federal government had your bank information (mostly because in past years you gave that information to the IRS for your tax refund). Paper checks have not been mailed out but are expected soon.
But today we learned that President Trump insisted that his name be placed on the check and this will delay the payments.
At the end of the day I give him credit to keeping a promise he made.
