$2 trillion for infrastructure agreed by Democrats and Trump!
"It was a very constructive meeting," "We agreed on a number, which was very, very, good, $2 trillion for infrastructure. Originally, we had started a little lower and even the President was eager to push it up to $2 trillion. That is a very good thing." Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said following the meeting with Trump.
"We told the President that we needed his ideas on funding ... Where does he propose that we can fund this? Because certainly in the Senate, if we don't have him on board it would be very hard to get the Senate to go along. We said we would meet in three weeks and he would present to us some of his ideas on funding. So this was a very, very good start and we hope it will go to a constructive conclusion." Schumer also said.
"Our message is: Let's work together," "The American people understand the need to build the infrastructure of our country. Let's find a solution." House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told said on Monday.
