Trump extends jobless benefits after talks with Democrats break down Updated: 2020-08-09 14:11:40 KST

In the United States, President Trump has signed executive orders to extend unemployment benefits and defer payroll taxes, which cover government programs like Social Security.
This comes after talks broke down last week with Democrats in Congress who wanted to extend unemployment not by 400 dollars a week, as President Trump has done, but by 600 and to give more financial support to struggling state and city governments.
The Democrats say Trump is overstepping his powers, but a challenge in court could take months.
Trump's executive orders will also stop evictions from rental homes that have federal backing and suspend payments on student loans.
