“Coronavirus aid talks are being held up over post office money,” US President Donald Trump told Fox Business Network on Thursday.
Democrats’ demand for election funding in the COVID-19 aid bill is also an issue that is holding up talks, Trump further added.
These comments don’t seem to be having a significant impact on market sentiment. As of writing, the S&P 500 futures were down 0.15% on a daily basis. On the other hand, the US Dollar Index, which tracks the USD’s performance against a baslet of six major currencies, was losing 0.3% at 93.13.
