[Ed. – Schumer’s motto: When they go low, we go petty.]

Senate Minority Leader  Chuck Schumer is not pleased that President Donald Trump’s name will appear on stimulus checks being sent out to millions of Americans – and he is planning to put forward legislation to stop it from happening again.

The No Politics in Pandemic Recovery Act, or No PR Act, proposed by Schumer would prohibit the use of any taxpayer funds “for any publicity or promotional activity that includes the names, likeness, or signature” of Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

“President Trump unfortunately appears to see the pandemic as just another opportunity to promote his own political interests. The No PR Act puts an end to the president’s exploitation of taxpayer money for promotional material that only benefits his re-election campaign,” Schumer said in a statement. “Delaying the release of stimulus checks so his signature could be added is a waste of time and money.”
