Trump Promises to Double Clinton Infrastructure Spending Plan

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton don’t agree on much but they do share common ground on the need to improve America’s roads and bridges.

Clinton has proposed spending $275 billion over five years.

Earlier today, Trump told FOX Business Network’s Stuart Varney he’ll do even more than that.

“We have a great plan and we are going to rebuild our infrastructure.  By the way, her [Hillary Clinton] numbers is a fraction of what we’re talking about, we need much more money than that to rebuild our infrastructure.  Well I would say at least double her numbers and you’re going to really need more than that.  We have bridges that are falling down.”

Trump is proposing to create bonds to help fund his plan.

“People, investors.  People would put money into the fund, citizens would put money into the fund and we will rebuild our infrastructure with that fund and it will be a great investment and it’s going to put a lot of people to work.”

“These would be bonds,” Trump explained further, “so we’d do infrastructure bonds from the United States.”

Trump says this project can lift economic growth above 4%.
