President Donald Trump signed a $2.2 trillion coronavirus economic relief and stimulus bill on Friday in a ceremony in the Oval Office.

The bill is meant to help the American economy amidst the issues sparked by the coronavirus pandemic.

Included in this bill is financial relief for millions of Americans that fit its criteria meant to help those who need it most.

The signing of the bill took place only hours following the House passing it with a bipartisan vote.

“I want to thank Democrats and Republicans for coming together and putting America first,” Trump said. “We got hit by the invisible enemy, and we got hit hard. I think we are going to have a tremendous rebound.”

This is the largest economic relief package in recent American history.

Included in the bill is $100 billion to help hospitals, $350 billion for small businesses, $500 million for various corporations and $150 billion towards state and local governments.
