President Trump signs legislation allowing companies to be fined for robocalls

President Donald Trump asked his acting chief of staff Mick Mulvaney to put a hold on millions in military aid to Ukraine roughly one week before a call with the Ukrainian president in which he pressured the country to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden's son, two senior administration officials said.

2020 may be the year you get fewer robocalls.

President Trump signed a bill into law on Monday increasing fines for companies using the phone to hawk illegal financial schemes and other services.

The “Traced Act” gives officials the authority to fine companies up to $10,000 for each illegally placed call. Americans have dealt with more than 1 billion such calls.

The new law comes after the Federal Communications Commission announced a nation-wide crackdown of robocalls in June.
