Trump heading to OH to talk infrastructure

Trump's speech came the day before Comey's highly anticipated testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday as the White House faced fresh allegations about possible efforts by the president to influence the investigation into potential ties between his campaign and Russian Federation. We had this bill that was like Noah's ark for every project, and he'd just spend money. "It also means that infrastructure that can't be built with tolls, like repairing our crumbling schools, for instance, will likely get left behind".

"We will do it using American labor, American energy, American iron, aluminum and steel", Trump pledged.

"We will construct incredible new monuments to American grit that inspire wonder for generations and generations", he said. To the surprise of defeated Democrats, the infrastructure plan re-emerged as a tangle of public-private partnerships, where - according to the few available details - local governments would trade the traditional federal match for infrastructure projects with 80/20 or 90/10 private/public funding.

TRUMP: So we're getting rid of the regulations, and we're massively streamlining the approvals and the permitting process.

Standing on the banks of the Ohio River, with a barge full of West Virginia coal in the background, President Donald Trump outlined a $1 trillion infrastructure plan.

Speaking in Cincinnati on Wednesday, President Trump continued his attack on the Affordable Care Act, declaring that "Obamacare is in a total death spiral". Trump had two families stand behind him as he presented to the American people the problems of Obama Care.

"We are a nation that created the Panama Canal, the Transcontinental Railroad and ... the great highway system - the interstate highways system".

This address comes on a busy news day in Washington, D.C. Early this morning, Trump announced that his new pick for Federal Bureau of Investigation director is Christopher Wray, a former Justice Department official. We don't do that anymore.

With his second critical tweet of Sadiq Khan's response to an ISIS van and knife attack, Trump drove another wedge between the United States and an ally with which American long has had a "special relationship". We crafted monuments to the American spirit.

Trump mentioned that people around the country are anxious there are bridges "so risky they are afraid they are going to fall down". "They said there's never been anything like it in our history", he said, before inflating the brag: "In the history of this world, there has never been anything like what took place two weeks ago in Saudi Arabia".

"It's time to rebuild our country, to bring back our jobs, to restore our dreams, and yes, it's time finally to put America first, and that's what I've been doing if you haven't noticed".

While infrastructure was initially seen as an area where Republican and Democrats could work together, Democrats have balked at Trump's plans for financing improvements, arguing they would result in taxpayer-funded corporate profits, with costs offloaded on consumers. "While it's very early in the administration, I think everyone has noticed", he said.
