Donald Trump spoke with Emmanuel Macron yesterday, as the French president continues to quarantine after testing positive for coronavirus.
“President Trump wished President Macron a speedy recovery and quick return to his full duties,” the White House said in a readout of the call.
Asked whether he believed a deal on government spending and coronavirus relief was possible today, Senate majority whip John Thune replied, “That would be a triumph of hope over experience.”
The Republican senator added, “Best-case scenario of getting something voted on was probably going to be Sunday, but it may be later.”
