President Donald Trump on Monday called on Republicans to skip days of hearings and quickly confirm his Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, so they could work on approving a stimulus package. Ykj世界播

周一,唐纳德·特朗普(Donald Trump)总统呼吁共和党人跳过几天的听证会,迅速确认他的最高法院提名人、法官艾米·科尼·巴雷特(Amy Coney Barrett),这样他们就可以努力批准一项刺激方案。Ykj世界播

"The Republicans are giving the Democrats a great deal of time, which is not mandated, to make their self serving statements relative to our great new future Supreme Court Justice," he wrote on Twitter. Ykj世界播


"Personally, I would pull back, approve, and go for STIMULUS for the people!!" he added. Ykj世界播


He reiterated his call in another tweet later on Monday. Ykj世界播


"Republicans should be strongly focused on completing a wonderful stimulus package for the American People!" he said. Ykj世界播


The Senate Judiciary Committee started confirmation hearings on Monday for Barrett. If she is confirmed toward the end of October, Barrett would lock in a 6-3 conservative majority on the Supreme Court. Ykj世界播


Democrats have criticized the short confirmation timetable and argued that it would come at the expense of passing another federal rescue package to pump hundreds of billions of dollars into the economy and aid jobless Americans and businesses in the short term. Ykj世界播


"We shouldn't be spending time on this when we are doing absolutely nothing to pass a much-needed COVID bill," Sen. Patrick Leahy of Vermont said in opening remarks on Monday. Ykj世界播

佛蒙特州参议员帕特里克·莱希(Patrick Leahy)在周一的开场白中表示:“我们不应该在这件事上花费时间,因为我们完全没有采取任何行动来通过一项亟需的COVID法案。”Ykj世界播

During a campaign appearance in Ohio, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden assailed Republicans for prioritizing Barrett's confirmation over economic aid to people, businesses, and jurisdictions. Ykj世界播


"In the middle of this pandemic, why do the Republicans have the time to hold a hearing on the Supreme Court instead of providing the significant economic need to localities?" Biden said, referring to aid to cash-strapped state and local governments. Ykj世界播


The Trump administration on Friday increased its stimulus-package offer to $1.8 trillion, its largest yet during a turbulent stretch of negotiations with Democrats. The president revived the talks after abruptly ending them last week. Ykj世界播


But Democrats and Senate Republicans blasted the proposal. Republicans said the price tag was too high and criticized several measures. And in a letter to colleagues on Sunday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi called it "insufficient" and laid out concerns about health funding and testing. Ykj世界播

但民主党人和参议院共和党人抨击了这项提案。共和党人说价格太高,并批评了几项措施。在周日致同僚的一封信中,众议院议长南希·佩洛西(Nancy Pelosi)称这是“不够的”,并阐述了对健康资金和测试的担忧。Ykj世界播

Pelosi has also taken issue with the administration's plans for federal funding for state and local aid, unemployment insurance, and tax credits for families and people with lower incomes. Ykj世界播


The administration on Sunday called on Congress to repurpose roughly $130 billion in unspent funding from the Paycheck Protection Program to aid small businesses. But Democrats have long rejected Republicans' efforts to address the public health and economic crises through individual bills. Ykj世界播

政府周日呼吁国会重新使用Paycheck保护计划(Paycheck Protection Program)中约1300亿美元的未使用资金,以帮助小企业。但民主党人长期以来一直拒绝共和党人通过个人法案解决公共卫生和经济危机的努力。Ykj世界播

The legislative window for action on a coronavirus relief bill is quickly closing, with three weeks until Election Day. Negotiations on an economic-aid package have mostly involved Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, with no input from Senate Republicans, some of whom are critical of supporting relief spending that would increase the national debt. Ykj世界播

就冠状病毒救济法案采取行动的立法窗口正在迅速关闭,距离选举日还有三周。有关经济援助方案的谈判主要涉及佩洛西和财政部长史蒂文·姆钦(Steven Mnuchin),参议院共和党人没有提供任何意见,其中一些人批评支持会增加国家债务的救济支出。Ykj世界播

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said last week that passing an aid package before the election was unlikely. Ykj世界播

参议院多数党领袖米奇·麦康奈尔(Mitch McConnell)上周表示,不太可能在选举前通过一揽子援助计划。Ykj世界播
