Breitbart’s White House correspondent Charlie Spiering tweeted: “Looks like Biden already bailing on $2,000 stimulus checks.”
One Twitter user said: “Mr President-elect…please dont reduce the stimulus checks to $1400. You promised $2k. This country is like a powder keg. And im worried what happens if you go back on your word.”
Some supporters claimed the total was indeed $2,000 when the new $1,400 checks are added to the the $600 already issued.
Just days ago, Biden tweeted: “$600 is simply not enough when you have to choose between paying rent or putting food on the table.
“We need $2,000 stimulus checks.”
