Trump and Pelosi Can Get Things Done on Infrastructure

Nov. 11, 2018 (EIRNS)—Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the former House Speaker when Democrats held the majority in the House of Representatives, touted the bipartisan potential for passing infrastructure development legislation at her press conference Nov. 7, The Hill reported. Pelosi, who is expected to seek that position again, mentioned that she had spoken to President Trump Tuesday night, after it became clear that the Democrats were going to take back the House, saying,

“Last night I had a conversation with President Trump about how we could work together. One of the issues that came up was ... building infrastructure for America, and I hope that we can achieve that.”

She continued,

“He talked about it during his campaign, and really didn’t come through with it in his first two years in office. But that issue has not been a partisan issue in the Congress of the United States.”

Rep. Pelosi highlighted the potential jobs that could be created in “surface transportation, water systems ... broadband... schools, housing, and the rest... Those initiatives will create good-paying jobs, and will also generate other economic growth in their regions. Hopefully, we can work in a bipartisan way,” she said.
