“The dialogue between the president, senior administration officials and the bipartisan group of members of Congress also included a range of topics, namely the need for additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, the international and domestic supply chains, ways to energize the economy, surprise medical billing, clarifying the difference between essential and non-essential workers, mental health, and relief for small businesses,” the release stated.

Romney shouldn’t be surprised by being snubbed by the President considering he’s spent his entire time in the Senate obstructing Trump’s agenda and stabbed the President in the back during the Democrats sham impeachment hearings.
