Donald Trump Infrastructure Speech in Cincinnati, Ohio

"We look forward to working with the Trump Administration to invest in our nation's waterways, roads, and bridges, and we thank the President for making this issue a top priority".

Wednesday broad messaging continued what the president has been doing all week, largely via his Twitter account. Trump has brushed aside such worries in favor of the potential economic boosts from environmental deregulation on numerous occasions, most recently with last week's withdrawal from the Paris climate accord. It has proposed funding the improvements with $200 billion in tax breaks over nine years that would - in theory - leverage $1 trillion worth of construction.

The United States has spent trillions in the Middle East, he said. Under a new infrastructure program, improvements to the nation's 12,000 miles of inland waterways will happen sooner, he said.

"Raya and Dan are just two of the victims of the health care catastrophe caused by congressional Democrats". "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. At the Rivertowne Marina, Trump was joined by several Cabinet secretaries as well as two NY real estate moguls, Richard LeFrak and Steven Roth, whom Trump had previously named to lead an infrastructure council to monitor progress.

Democrats, many of whom support the idea of an infrastructure package, pushed back on Trump's proposal to privatize air-traffic control. Sen.

Trump's speech came the day before Comey's highly anticipated testimony to the Senate Intelligence Committee on Thursday as the White House faced fresh allegations about possible efforts by the president to influence the investigation into potential ties between his campaign and Russian Federation. Democrats are destroying health care in the country.

"I sent a clear message that America expects fair trade, a level playing field, and so many other things that we're demanding for our workers and for our companies", he said.

USA inland waterways are critical routes for transporting agricultural products, but officials say they've grown old and run down. AP writer Bruce Schreiner contributed to this report from Louisville, Kentucky.

Trump will be speaking on the topic of infrastructure at the Rivertowne Marina beginning at about 1:20 p.m.
