House Speaker Nancy Pelosi gave a 48-hour deadline on Sunday, saying she would have to negotiate a deal on the next coronavirus stimulus package before the Nov. 3 election.

In an interview with ABC’s “This Week,” the California Democrat said the next two days would be crucial in terms of the timing for the presidential election to be signed by President Donald Trump.

With two weeks to go before the election, Americans and small businesses, whose financial and economic outlooks were overwhelmed by the coronavirus epidemic, are being pushed for a second round of stimulus investigations.

Over the past few weeks, the Trump administration has aggressively pushed out a pre-election stimulus package.

Asked on Sunday if Americans could expect to receive a second round of relief within this period, Pelosi said, “Well, it’s up to the administration.”

“I’m optimistic,” he added.
