Sen. Durbin says Pres. Trump refuses infrastructure program talks because of investigations

U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin says the country needs the infrastructure system Pres. Trump promised. But he says the country won’t get it while Trump is in office.

Speaking at a labor summit in Ottawa Saturday, Durbin said Trump was in favor of major projects for roads, schools, and broadband expansions. And then he changed his mind early last year because of the investigations against him.

Durbin says he disagrees with Pres. Trump on a lot of things, but he’ll support an infrastructure program.

Sen. Durbin speaks at the Illinois Valley Federation of Labor and Illinois Valley Building Trades Labor Summit.
