The Wall Street Journal reports Donald Trump would like to see his signature on the stimulus checks that will be sent out after he signed a $2.2 trillion coronavirus relief package into law Friday, according to an administration official.
Normally such checks would be signed by a disbursing officer, not the president.
Trump always wants “credit” for everything that happens in the country, and a check bearing his signature could appear to some as if the Donald is giving Americans these funds when actually the American people are writing the checks.
Trump's "signature" on checks is a great lie that will be totally believed and worshiped by his base. 43% of Americans will think he's giving them money. https://t.co/hTTndXA8Wl

Trump wanting his signature on relief checks is another weak attempt at quid pro quo. “ I gave you a whole $1200.00, you owe me your vote.

Trump wants his signature to appear on the individual checks to Americans, as if the money is fucking coming from him.
