    White House chief of staff Mark Meadows says the Trump administration is looking at a potential “standalone bill” to give more stimulus relief to the country after the president announced the end to negotiations on Capitol Hill. “There’s about 10 things that we agree on. And if the Speaker is willing to look at those things on a piece by piece basis, then we’re willing to look at it,” said Meadows Wednesday while talking to reporters on the White House driveway. “It became very obvious over the last couple of days that a comprehensive bill was just going to get to a point where it didn’t have really much Republican support at all. It was more of a Democrat led bill.” This comes after President Donald Trump tweeted that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi was “not negotiating in good faith” and said he’s asked Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell to direct all his focus before the election into confirming his U.S. Supreme Court nominee, Amy Coney Barrett. Hours later, Trump appeared to edge back a bit from his call to end negotiations. He took to Twitter again and called on Congress to send him a “Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200)” – a reference to a pre-election batch of direct payments to most Americans that had been a central piece of negotiations between Pelosi and the White House. Pelosi has generally rejected taking a piecemeal approach to COVID relief. The unexpected turn could be a blow to Trump’s reelection prospects and comes as his administration and campaign are in turmoil. Trump is quarantining in the White House with a case of COVID, and the latest batch of opinion polls shows him significantly behind former Vice President Joe Biden with the election four weeks away. The collapse means that Trump and down-ballot Republicans will face reelection without delivering aid to voters – such as the $1,200 direct payments, or “Trump checks,” to most individuals – even as the national jobless rate is about 8% with millions facing the threat of eviction.
