On Tuesday, President Donald Trump took to Twitter to share his thoughts about a “Phase 4” stimulus bill to combat the economic destruction cause by the Chinese Coronavirus.
The President stated that it may be time to pass a long awaited infrastructure bill.
“With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill,” President Trump wrote on Twitter.
“It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country!” he added.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
The first coronavirus emergency bill was $8.2 billion, the second cost over $150 billion, and the third was over $2 trillion.
Trump has long pushed for a big $2 trillion infrastructure bill, but partisan pursuits from House and Senate Democrats have left the concept mired in limbo.
In January, House Democrats unveiled a $750 billion infrastructure bill to help rebuild roads and bridges but included an expensive electric vehicle charging network and carbon reduction. The Senate also has proposed a $287 billion infrastructure bill for repairing highways, bridges, and tunnels.
