Congress Turns Cold Shoulder To Trump Infrastructure Push

Опубликовано 6 июня 2017, 17:14
On Monday, The White House's self-proclaimed "Infrastructure Week" began with Trump speaking to aviation officials and prominent GOP lawmakers, announcing his plans to privatize the nation's air traffic control system and separate operations from the FAA. But Trump's proposal quickly drew bipartisan opposition, with Republican Senator Jerry Moran stating that "All but our largest airports nationwide stand to be hurt by this proposal." And as the week wears on, reports are coming in that the President's plans for repairing the nation's crumbling infrastructure - which was expected to be an area ripe for compromise between Democrats and the embattled president - is stumbling out of the gate, with Trump's proposed $1 trillion overhaul being widely panned by both parties. Trump - who still hopes to muster public and private funding for overhauling the nation's highway, waterway, electrical and airway systems - will travel to Ohio on Wednesday, where he will face continued criticism for a plan that many say will result in taxpayer-funded corporate profits, at the expense of local investments.
