Trump indicated the bill is a step forward.

“It’s encouraging to see members on both sides of the aisle putting forward paid family leave proposals," she said in a statement. "We finally have bipartisan agreement on the importance of paid leave for working parents. Now we are seeking to build consensus around policy that can garner enough votes to be passed into law.” 

Trump has been a supporter of expanding paid leave from work for families. 

"Only 15% of American workers have access to Paid Family Leave, and of those, only 6% are low-income workers. This must change," Trump tweeted over the summer.

 

In August, Rubio introduced a paid parental leave bill to allow new parents to receive social security benefits early if they will delay their social security receipt upon retirement.
