WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said after separate meetings with Democratic and Republican congressional leaders on Monday that the two sides were getting “a little bit” closer to agreeing on a larger package of coronavirus economic aid.

“We’re open to a bigger package if we can reach an agreement,” Mnuchin told reporters.

But White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, asked if Republicans would need to go above $1 trillion for a deal, told reporters “we’re so far apart right now that’s not even a valid question.”
