President Donald Trump arrived in New Jersey on Thursday evening to begin a three-day vacation at his Bedminster golf course.

Reporters shouted questions about the stalled stimulus negotiations, but AP White House correspondent Jonathan Lemire reports that Trump ignored the question.

The Republican-controlled U.S. Senate adjourned on Thursday, allowing members a three-day weekend.

Thursday was also the 20th week in a row when the federal government has reported that more than one million Americans signed up for unemployment benefits.
