Klobuchar made similar claims against Trump during an MSNBC appearance Tuesday night accusing the president of "trying to burn this country down on his way out" by failing to pass the coronavirus stimulant bill passed by Congress on Monday supported.
"This was a highly competitive negotiation," said Klobuchar. "The Democrats pushed for more funding for the individual payments, but in the end this was a negotiation and he knows very well that we are going to end here with unemployment … our small businesses can't take it anymore."
