House Speaker Nancy Pelosi dismissed President Donald Trump’s call for a payroll tax cut and changes in the capital gains tax, saying it wouldn’t help millions of unemployed workers and others struggling in an economy shut down by the pandemic.

Speaking Thursday in a Bloomberg Television interview, Pelosi also said the House may vote on its version of a new coronavirus rescue bill next week, which she said won’t cover new territory but will “dig deeper” in terms of addressing the country’s needs.
