Trump takes infrastructure pitch to OH as sweeping bill stalls in Congress

"Nearly 40 percent of our bridges were built before the first moon landing", said Trump.

Brown adds that he's all for a $1 trillion infrastructure plan, but with more money coming from the feds so local and state money will be encouraged to follow.

Critics of Trump's infrastructure proposal say it puts too much of the financial burden on local governments and loosens important environmental regulations. "You know why? Because it's a very strong card and I want to make sure everyone is treated fairly and we're moving along very nicely with North Korea".

Trump's speech felt at times like a stream of consciousness commentary reminiscent of his signature campaign rallies from 2016, as he zigzagged from his prepared text on infrastructure policy to his thoughts on issues of the day, like this week's debut of the remake of "Roseanne".

Trump also touted his ability to get the job done, stating, "I was better at building than being president". Union builders took to their feet to try to see the president.

Manafort associate had links to Russian intelligence
Dowd insisted Wednesday that he did not raise the idea of pardons with lawyers representing the two men. Trump has virtually unlimited powers to pardon people even before they have been charged with a crime.

Despite the administration's aggressive push for the president's plan, which calls for $200 billion in new federal funds that the officials claim will stimulate $1.5 trillion in new investment in infrastructure, its future remains murky in the halls of Congress despite broad public approval for fixing the country's crumbling roads and bridges. White House spokespeople said Trump categorically denied all the allegations made by Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford.

President Donald Trump is bidding farewell to one of his longest-serving aides as he departs for Ohio.

She worked for the Trump organization before serving as the Trump campaign's one-woman press shop and has been working at the White House since Trump's inauguration. The president unveiled the proposal in February and cast it as able to garner bipartisan support, but it has bogged down in Congress.

A bitter fight is underway to fill the communications director role.
