The President of the United States has proposed a plan to help workers at companies that are facing a debt crisis, but his personal staff may be among those affected.
Speaking to the Business Insider audience in New York City, Trump said he would support a $100 billion relief package for American workers affected by the Great Recession, which saw the country fall into a prolonged recession.
The President also said he will also work with Congress to provide relief to the US Postal Service, the largest U.S. mail service.
Trump said his administration would work to reduce the impact of the debt crisis on his own staff, who will likely be among the hardest hit by the cuts, which have been announced by the Treasury Department and other agencies.
Trump is not alone in his desire to help US workers affected, with other leaders of both parties calling for a similar deal in recent months.
Trump himself has expressed an interest in helping those affected by a debt crunch in the past.
While Trump has said that his administration is working to help people affected by debt, he has also promised to “renegotiate” a $4 trillion budget proposal, which is the size of the government he has proposed.
While the Trump administration has not released details of his plans, a White House source said the President is looking at what he can offer.
“If there’s any hope of getting a deal done, we need to do that,” the source said.
“But he’s been very clear that he would like to renegotiate.
That’s his interest, and it’s not something he’s going to let up.”
The Trump administration is expected to begin discussing a debt relief package on Wednesday.
