Trump Budget to Include $200 Billion for Infrastructure over Decade: Official
(Reuters) – President Donald Trump plans to propose $200 billion in infrastructure spending over 10 years, an amount the administration hopes will encourage another $800 billion in infrastructure investment by the private sector, a White House official said on Friday.
