“Since day one, President Trump has taken bold, decisive actions to combat the spread of the coronavirus, and his leadership in securing the passage of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act is another example of how he is affirmatively leading our nation’s response efforts to provide economic relief to small businesses and to support Americans’ health care needs.
