WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump said on Tuesday he did not support everything in the Senate Republican coronavirus relief legislation but would not elaborate on what he did not like.

Asked at a news briefing if there were aspects of the bill he did not support, Trump said: “Yeah, there are actually, and we’ll be talking about it. There are also things that I very much support. But we’ll be negotiating. It’s sort of semi-irrelevant because the Democrats come with their needs and asks and the Republicans go with theirs.”
