Talks on a new coronavirus stimulus package will start at the White House on Monday with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and others, said President Donald Trump’s chief of staff.

House Republican Leader Kevin McCarthy will also be present, Mark Meadows said in a “Sunday Morning Futures” interview on Fox News Channel. Mnuchin “is leading it from our side,” Meadows said.

The meeting comes as the Trump administration balks at $25 billion in new funding favored by Republican lawmakers to help states with coronavirus testing and contact tracing, according to a person familiar.
