President Trump Agrees With Chuck and Nancy on Infrastructure Package
 
President Trump met with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi on  Tuesday to discuss an infrastructure package. Schumer has announced that they have agreed on a $2 trillion package.

According to Fox News:

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that President Trump agreed to support a $2 trillion infrastructure spending package after meeting with him and other Democrats at the White House, though the details are not yet clear.

The president – a real estate developer before he was elected president – has long sought to strike a big infrastructure deal, but has faced some resistance from conservatives in his party over concerns about the country’s rising debt.

Democratic leaders, speaking to reporters outside the White House after meeting with Trump, called the meeting constructive.

“We agreed on a number – which was very, very good. Two trillion dollars for infrastructure. Originally, we started a little lower. Even the president was eager to push it up to two trillion dollars,” Schumer said.

The White House has called the session "excellent and productive" which is the complete opposite of the last time the group met to discuss immigration.
