(Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump says that he is signing an executive order to provide an additional $400 a week in expanded benefits to unemployed Americans.

It was one of slew of measures he announced to reporters in Bedminster, New Jersey. Others include directives providing relief to student loan borrowers and protections against evictions.

Trump also promised that he would - if re-elected - make permanent cuts to payroll taxes.
