WASHINGTON—House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin negotiated for months on more aid for Americans affected by the coronavirus lockdowns. President Donald Trump on Tuesday told Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., to shift his attention to confirming Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court and to postpone talks on a stimulus package until after the Nov. 3 election. He said the Democrats’ proposals included too much spending that had nothing to do with COVID-19 relief.
