President Trump issues statement after signing Executive Order on infrastructure”

Mr. Trump is spending the day at New York City's Trump Tower, in the middle of a two-week working vacation mostly spent in Bedminster, New Jersey.

President Donald Trump signed an executive order on Tuesday aimed at easing the permitting process for major infrastructure projects.

Trump campaigned on a pledge to remake the way the federal government handles infrastructure projects, casting himself as a real estate developer who knows what it takes to get a building project done.

He has proposed leveraging $200 billion in government spending into $1 trillion of projects to privatize the air traffic control system, strengthen rural infrastructure and fix bridges, roads and waterways.

Earlier, the president was set to "receive an update from his infrastructure team", a White House official said to CNN.

"We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals", Trump said in his election victory speech on November 9. "We're going to rebuild our infrastructure, which will become, by the way, second to none".

Trump launched "Infrastructure Week" at the White House in June, where he promised to streamline the federal approval for infrastructure projects.
