President Trump expressed his support for Republican-backed payroll assistance to keep airlines operating on Wednesday.
“Well if they need it … obviously the airlines business is not doing very well. You have shutdowns all over the world and you have airlines that are essentially shut down,” Trump said during a White House news conference.
"I think it’s very important we keep the airlines going,” he continued, later adding, “If they’re looking at that, whether they’re Republican or Democrat, I’d be certainly in favor. We can’t lose our transportation system.”
