Trump Meets Tribal Leaders, Promising to Distribute Long-Delayed Coronavirus Relief Funds

HeadlineMay 06, 2020

President Trump wore no mask during a roundtable discussion Tuesday with Native American leaders. At the meeting, Trump promised to send a half-billion dollars to the Navajo Nation, which has been devastated by COVID-19.

The Treasury Department said Tuesday it had begun dispersing $4.8 billion of those funds.
