President Trump is continuing his push to overhaul the nation’s infrastructure.
During a bipartisan meeting with several lawmakers Wednesday at the White House, the president emphasized the need to rebuild and repair what he called the country’s “depleted” infrastructure.
This comes after President Trump revealed his $1.5 trillion infrastructure plan earlier this week.
“We’ve been having meetings with different members of Congress…they’ve been very successful meetings,” said the president. “We’ll see how it all turns out — This a priority that is shared by members of both parties and most importantly it’s shared with the American people and by the American people.”
The plan calls for at least $200 billion in federal funding toward infrastructure projects, with the remaining costs being picked up by state and local governments.
The president recently announced that he will be donating his quarterly salary to the Department of Transportation, which will go towards critical infrastructure projects.
