Trump heading to Ohio to talk infrastructure

Trump heading to Ohio to talk infrastructure”

Speaking in Cincinnati, Ohio, Trump reviewed a proposal announced earlier this year to leverage $200 billion in his budget proposal into a $1 trillion of projects to privatise the air traffic control system, strengthen rural infrastructure and fix bridges, roads and waterways.

"America must have the best, fastest and most reliable infrastructure in the world", Trump said, referencing a five-day river shutdown because of damaged lock on the Ohio River.

At the riverfront rally, Trump said if the American economy is to completely recover "we must end Obamacare". "We will create the first-class infrastructure our country and our people deserve".

Wednesday broad messaging continued what the president has been doing all week, largely via his Twitter account.

And Trump replied to a reporter's question that he wishes Comey "good luck" during his Senate Intelligence Committee testimony.

Trump says an $8.7 billion maintenance backlog for waterways is only getting worse.

Trump did not mention the events in Washington during his visit to Cincinnati, where he also made separate remarks shortly after landing about the effort to repeal Obamacare.

Trump said that as he campaigned across the country a year ago, people often asked him why the US was spending money to rebuild other countries when the roads and bridges they travel on needed rebuilding, too.

"It's time to rebuild our country, to bring back our jobs, to restore our dreams", Mr. Trump said.

Trump called on Democrats to support his infrastructure plan, but he then quickly went after them for opposing his agenda - in particular, the GOP's proposal to overhaul health care. Many argue such a plan would result in taxpayer-funded profits for corporations with the cost loaded onto consumers. Trump understands that without the support of the people, the Senate will not pass health care reform that can resolve numerous problems created by the Affordable Care Act.

Trump met briefly with family business owners impacted by rising health insurance premiums.

"It's just insane expensive", said Dan Withrow, president and owner of a pallet packaging and distribution company in Louisville, Kentucky. "But I just don't see them coming together - they're obstructionist". Democratic politicians regularly use stories of people who are facing a hard situation to help drive public opinion to drive the change that they desire. "One of the biggest broken promises ever".

"The Democrats are destroying health care in this country", he said.

"You saw what happened last week with the so-called Paris Accord".

Trump said he would not allow the United States to become a "museum of former glory".

Trump said as long as he is president "we will never have outside forces telling us what to do and how to do it".

Though the President calls the plan a $1 trillion plan, Trump has previously proposed $200 billion in tax cuts that the White House and Trump administration hope will spur $1 trillion in infrastructure investment.

Trump has denied any collusion between Russian Federation and his campaign. "It's time to recapture our legacy as a nation of builders and to create new lanes of travel, commerce, and discovery, and we're going to see all the way into the future, and the future's going to be handsome, and the future's going to be bright", he added. He will be replacing James Comey, who Trump fired last month. Barges the president said were carrying West Virginia-produced coal were visible on the river behind him.

Superville contributed from Washington.

Trump offered Wednesday to personally broker a resolution to the Persian Gulf's escalating diplomatic crisis, as both he and Qatar's leader looked past his pointed suggestion only a day earlier that the tiny gas-rich nation enables terrorism. Shown are PlayCare co-owner Rays Whalen, left, and CSS Distribution Group President Dan Withrow and their families. "That's why they lost the House, it's why they lost the Senate, it's why they lost the White House".

The president then wrested control of the state party from Gov. John Kasich in January, when Trump-backed Cincinnati native Jane Timken was voted Ohio Republican Party chair.
