Democrats, Trump Agree On $2 Trillion 'Bipartisan' Infrastructure Plan

• by Tyler Durdan

The leaders said the talks had gone well, and that the two sides had agreed on a $2 trillion figure for a forthcoming plan to rebuild American bridges, roads railways and other vital infrastructure. Schumer told reporters that another meeting about financing will be held in three weeks.

Amusingly, Republican leaders in the House have told reporters in recent days that there's no appetite for such a large plan among Republicans in Congress.

In a letter delivered to Trump ahead of the meeting, the Democratic leaders advised Trump that a bipartisan deal must include new sources of financing, considerations for clean energy, and protections for labor, women and minority business owners.
