WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. President Donald Trump said on Monday he hoped negotiators in Congress would reach a deal to provide more aid for small businesses hurt by the coronavirus pandemic, with a vote possible in the Senate on Tuesday.

“We hope to have an agreement on that very soon. A lot of progress has been made on that,” Trump said at a White House briefing.
