He didn’t give details except to say the amount should be significant and millionaires would not get it. He added that he will be heading to Capitol Hill to preview the amounts with Republican lawmakers. 

“Americans need cash now and the president wants to get cash now, and I mean now in the next two weeks,” Mnuchin said.
