Dems Meet with Trump on Infrastructure

(Washington, DC) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says Democrats and President Trump had a very productive meeting on infrastructure. After a meeting with Trump today, Pelosi said there was general agreement on the need to go “big and bold” on renovating highways, bridges, airports and rails. Outside the White House, Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called the meeting very constructive and said the President agreed on the need to spend roughly two-trillion dollars on infrastructure. Schumer noted that the two sides will get together again in three weeks. One tricky area will be how to pay for a sweeping infrastructure bill, a discussion that will come later.
