WEST PALM BEACH – After nearly a week’s delay and under pressure from all sides, President Donald Trump signed a $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill Sunday, the White House said, extending benefits to millions of Americans struggling through the pandemic.

The package “providing coronavirus emergency response and relief” is part of a larger spending bill that, with Trump’s signature, will avoid a government shutdown.
