Trump approves $2 trillion financial package


US President Donald Trump has signed off the largest-ever US financial stimulus package, worth $2 trillion.

The country is grappling with the coronavirus pandemic, as the US tally of cases tops 100,000.

US unemployment has hit a record high of 3.3 million people. 

The House of Representatives passed the cross-party bill two days after the Senate debated its provisions.

"This will deliver urgently needed relief to our nation's families, workers and businesses," Trump said.
