Don Jr rages ‘homicidal maniacs and murderers’ are getting $1,400 stimulus checks in jail as taxpayers foot bill

DONALD Trump Jr has raged about how "homicidal maniacs and murderers" are getting $1,400 stimulus checks in jail – with the help of taxpayers.

The former president's 43-year-old son took to an online video platform, known as Rumble, to denounce Democrats for pushing "lunacy" on the American people.

Trump Jr. blasted Dems for their "pet projects" and for giving relief money to people like the Boston marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, one of the men behind the 2013 attack that killed three people and injured more than 260.

White supremacist Dylann Roof is also among the many prisoners set to receive $1,400 stimulus checks.

Roof killed nine people at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.

Speaking outside on a sunny day, alongside palm trees and presumably in Florida, Trump Jr said: "So, your taxpayer dollars are going to be going into the hands of mass murderers.

"I'm sure there's plenty of rapists and other scum… and pedophiles that are in prison that will likely be getting these checks as well – paid for curtesy of you.

"If that doesn't pi** you off guys, I don't know what will – because it's insane."

The former reality television personality's video comes as Biden is on track to sign off on $1,400 stimulus checks for low and middle income Americans.

Trump Jr added: "And now the Democrats are making sure that homicidal maniacs and mass murderers get their share.

"They get their $1,400 stimulus – not sure what they can do with it, they're in prison for life.

"I guess they get to enjoy the fruits of your labors at the local commissary behind bars.

"They should be thanking you. And you should be pi**ed at your officials for allowing this cr*p to happen."

The House is set to vote on his $1.9trillion Covid bill as soon as Tuesday – before unemployment benefits run out on Sunday.

According to Trump Jr, who insisted that taxpayers' money is going to "this insanity," 330million Americans multiplied by $1,400 ends up being "way short of $1.9trillion.

He then questioned where the remainder of the money is going as not all Americans are eligible to receive the money.

Biden''s stimulus bill was also recently slammed by Senator Tom Cotton.

Cotton took to Twitter on Saturday to list qualifying murders, but failed to mention that inmates qualified for stimulus checks in the previous two relief packages as well.

The senator also brought up Aaron Shamo, who was "sentenced to life in prison for selling '1 million fentanyl-laced fake oxycodone pills to unsuspecting buyers," and will also qualify for a check.

People who earn $75,000 or less will pocket the full stimulus amount but these checks phase out faster for people at higher income levels than in the version passed on this weekend by House Democrats.

Americans who earn $80,000 a year or more don't qualify for the full payment and neither do couples making $160,000+ per annum.

The package also ups emergency unemployment benefits and spending for Covid-19 testing, along with tax breaks to help people earning less  – and Democrats in the chamber are expected to approve the bill.

Thereafter, stimulus checks will begin being sent out to Americans who fit the bill.

Over the weekend, Biden revealed that Americans could start receiving their $1,400 stimulus this month 

It comes after exhausted senators approved the relief package by 50-49 after an all-night voting session.
