Trump suspends payments, interest on US student loans

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Friday’s Trump administration temporarily suspended interest and payments on federal student loans for at least the next 60 days, US President Donald Trump told reporters at a press conference on Friday.

Trump also said that the United States Department of Education will not impose standardized tests on students due to the nation’s widespread school closings.
