Tempers Flare In Coronavirus Aid Negotiations

As financial markets fall and case numbers soar, Congress has (so far) been unable to reach a deal on a major coronavirus aid package with an expected price tag of more than a trillion dollars. Also, Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has become the first senator to test positive for the coronavirus. Close contact with Paul has led at least two other senators to self-quarantine. This episode: political correspondent Scott Detrow, White House correspondent Tamara Keith, and congressional correspondent Kelsey Snell.
