President Donald Trump tweeted to Congress on Christmas to “give our people the money,” insisting on $2,000 direct payments in the next round of stimulus checks rather than $600. Without Trump’s signature on a bill, aid programs are set to expire on Saturday for an estimated 12 million Americans. NBC’s Garrett Haake reports for Weekend TODAY.
