Moon should offer the U.S. $2.5 Trillion

President Moon should take the initiative and make an offer President Trump can’t refuse. He should offer not $5 billion but $2.5 trillion. In exchange, President Moon would ask the U.S. to agree to a New Comprehensive Peace Regime.

Shortly after announcing the mortgage relief order, the California Governor Gavin Newsom issued an order for eviction relief for residential tenants.

What does it do?

According to KQED, effective immediately, it bans the enforcement of eviction orders through May 31 for renters unable to pay rent due to:

  • contracting COVID-19
  • caring for someone who has contracted the virus
  • loss of wages due to the shelter in place order
  • missing work home childcare after school closure

What does it not do?

It does not cover evictions unrelated to the coronavirus KQED (3/27/2020). A tenant could be evicted for violating other terms of the Lease Agreement.

However, it should be noted that the Orange County Superior Court (accessed 3/30/2020) itself is closed until April 24th and landlords are unlikely to be able to initiate any eviction order by then.

What should you do?

You should likely pay the mortgage as usual if you are able to. But if you cannot, due to any of the above reasons, you must notify the landlord with documentation demonstrating the fact at least 1 week before the rent due date.

Documentation could include the following (OC Register, accessed 3/30/2020):

  • bank statements
  • letter of termination
  • letter from a former employer
  • sales receipts
  • order receipts
  • medical bills
  • others
