Trump agrees on $1.8 trillion economic relief package

US President Donald Trump and the Senate have agreed a massive economic relief package worth more than $1.8 trillion.
 
The package includes money to bail out industries that have been affected by the coronavirus crisis.
 
It reportedly includes payments of $1,200 to most American adults and aid to help small businesses pay workers.
 
The legislation, if it passes Congress, would be the largest emergency aid package in US history and the most significant legislative action taken to address the rapidly intensifying coronavirus crisis, which is overwhelming hospitals and grinding much of the economy to a halt.
