The Trump administration may take action on additional coronavirus aid if Congress doesn't.

A senior White House official told Fox News, "As the negotiations continue to progress at a snail's pace, the administration is considering a number of options that might be available without congressional legislative action." 

Republicans offered to extend the $600 additional unemployment benefit for another week while negotiations continued, but Democrats rejected the extension.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says, "Those that are counting on enhanced unemployment need to be gravely concerned about the lack of progress."

“My recommendation would be for them to call their members of Congress and their senators and ask them why they are not willing to compromise when obviously the White House is willing to compromise," Meadows continued.
