Stimulus Checks May Be Delayed As Trump Requires U.S. Treasury to Print His Name on Them – Newsweek, Newsweek
Late Monday evening, the U.S. Treasury Department ordered the Internal Revenue Service to print President Donald Trump’s name on the stimulus checks it is sending to millions of Americans nationwide, reports The Washington Post .
The Treasury Department’s order could cause the checks to be delayed by several days or longer, senior agency officials told the publication.
The unprecedented decision will mark the first time in history that a president’s name has ever appeared on an IRS disbursement. Usually, presidents’ names don’t appear on checks issued by the Treasury Department in order to keep such payments non-partisan.
His name will appear on the memo line appearing left side of the stimulus check.
