Pelosi: COVID-19 aid possible before election but it's up to Trump

WASHINGTON, Oct 23 (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said it still was possible to get another round of COVID-19 aid before the Nov. 3 election, but that it was up to President Donald Trump to act if he wants to finalize a deal for more financial relief soon.

Pelosi, in an interview on MSNBC, said that she hoped the Trump administration was on the verge of accepting language aimed at tackling the novel coronavirus pandemic and that she was still optimistic an agreement could be reached. (Reporting by Susan Cornwell and Susan Heavey)
