Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell are reeling after Speaker Nancy Pelosi passed $2,000 stimulus.

“The U.S. House of Representatives on Monday voted to pass a bill to increase the $600 stimulus checks to $2,000, with 275 members voting for the bill and 134 voting against it. The bill received the needed two-thirds majority of the members voting to pass in the House.
