The White House said Sunday night that President Trump signed legislation for $900 billion in coronavirus economic aid and $1.4 trillion in government spending, providing support for millions of Americans and averting a government shutdown.

Mr. Trump signed the bill one day before the government was set to shut down –  but not before unemployment benefits for an estimated 12 million Americans lapsed.

“I am signing this bill to restore unemployment benefits, stop evictions, provide rental assistance, add money for PPP, return our airline workers back to work, add substantially more money for vaccine distribution, and much more,” Mr. Trump said in a statement.
