Trump Calls For $2 Trillion Infrastructure Bill As Coronavirus Response

"President Trump is calling for a $2 trillion infrastructure package as part of the government’s emergency response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Democrats Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have called for increased infrastructure spending to mitigate the outbreak’s effects, after talks between the White House and Democrats failed in recent years.

It remains to be seen if Congress will be comfortable passing another mammoth spending measure after approving the emergency $2 trillion coronavirus relief bill last week."
