Trump demands $2 trillion for infrastructure after blowing up negotiations

By Josh Israel -March 31, 2020 2:42 PM

Donald Trump said last year that he would not do anything to rebuild infrastructure unless Congress stopped doing oversight.

Donald Trump asked for $2 trillion Tuesday to fund infrastructure projects, nearly a year after blowing up an earlier bipartisan plan for exactly that.

"With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill," he tweeted. "It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4"

This idea is nothing new for Trump, whose broken promise to "build the next generation of roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, sea ports and airports" has become something of a national joke.

Last April, Trump, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer agreed on the broad outlines of a $2 trillion infrastructure deal. Then-White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders hailed the "excellent and productive" meetings, saying, "We have to invest in this country’s future and bring our infrastructure to a level better than it has ever been before."


I think those / these companies that got a deferment on paying there fair share of the SS tax, should have to pay or take a tax credit, instead of having it covered by the general fund...............if they want contacts
