The coronavirus pandemic has shut down the everyday lives of millions of Americans, keeping them cooped up in their homes as state governors issue stay at home orders and social distancing is enforced.

Jim Cramer weighed in on whether or not the government should further help small businesses, which have been heavily impacted by the closures of retailers, restaurants, bars, etc.

And should winners--such as Walmart  (WMT) - Get Report, Amazon  (AMZN) - Get Report, and Costco  (COST) - Get Report--help small businesses?

Cramer says no. After all, it's still capitalism. 

However, Cramer says that he is going back and forth with Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin on how the White House and the government can continue to help small businesses who have been forced to shutter due to the coronavirus pandemic.
