Nancy Pelosi gave the White House a 48-hour deadline to resolve the contentious COVID-19 relief negotiations, which have become increasingly rooted in partisanship.

Discussions over federal aid have pulled Democrats and Republicans on Capitol Hill into an ongoing, back-and-forth battle over the next deal's provisions.

But on Saturday evening, the House Speaker's office revealed that Pelosi had an hour-long conversation with Secretary of the Treasury Steven Mnuchin via phone call.

'There remains an array of additional differences as we go provision by provision that must be addressed in a comprehensive manner in the next 48 hours.'

'Decisions must be made by the White House in order to demonstrate that the Administration is serious about reaching a bipartisan agreement that provides for Americans with the greatest needs during the pandemic,' wrote Hammill.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi joins CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" by phone to discuss the bipartisan stimulus package to help counteract the economic downturn as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

In one instance, McConnell rejected a short-term spending bill draft from House Democrats that was intended to extend federal funding packages through December 11.

He blasted the draft as 'shameful' for not including provisions aimed at American farmers, a voting bloc that the Trump administration has devoted billions in relief to amid his trade wars and the pandemic.

Trump briefly stopped negotiations until after the November election, but reversed that decision and declared he wanted a bipartisan agreement.

Republicans have pushed for a series of singular bills, while Democrats have advocated for a sweeping package that addressed several sectors of the pandemic.

'I’m ready to sign a big, beautiful stimulus,' Trump announced during his NBC town hall event on Thursday.

Trump also said he was willing to spend more than the $1.88trillion White House package, but that would likely be a hard sell to some Republicans.

'A massive bill is a base killer. I don’t think it’s politically smart to be doing this for people that supported Donald Trump and a Republican Senate,' GOP Sen. Ron Johnson of Wisconsin told WSJ.

'At some point in time, people will wonder: why are we voting for Republicans?...Or why vote at all?'

Republicans will their hands full in the upcoming weeks as they attempt to prepare for the November election, construct tangible relief aid and vote on Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett.

'If Democrats do not obstruct this legislation, we will have time to pass it before we turn to Judge Barrett’s nomination immediately after it comes out of committee,' said McConnell in his statement.

WSJ reports that Democrats will likely block the next wave of bills from Senate Republicans.

They've labeled the GOP's bill insufficient given the scope of the pandemic.
