As per the latest updates on the US coronavirus (COVID-19) stimulus talks, conveyed by Jennifer Shutt from CQNow and Roll Coll, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has recently left the Capitol Hill building, the place for Congress discussion over the key issues.

While leading, the diplomat said, “We’re still close and we’re going to get there.”
