WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said differences remain with President Donald Trump’s administration on a wide-ranging coronavirus relief package, including language on testing provisions that affect minority populations.

“They took out … 55% of the language that we had there for testing and tracing. And the tracing part is so important because communities of color had been disproportionately affected by this,” Pelosi said on ABC’s “This Week.”
