Pelosi says infrastructure bill should be $1 trillion-$2 trillion

LEESBURG, Va. (Reuters) - U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said on Thursday that she would meet Republican President Donald Trump soon to talk about a plan to rebuild the country’s infrastructure that she thinks should be worth at least $1 trillion, and maybe $2 trillion.

“Has to be at least $1 trillion, I’d like it to be closer to $2 trillion,” Pelosi, a Democrat, said to reporters at a House Democratic meeting in Leesburg, Virginia. She declined to say how such an amount could be paid for, saying that was “to be discussed.”

Pelosi said she would meet Trump soon to “talk about what that number would be,” and she was optimistic they could work together on it.

The speaker had told The Associated Press in an interview published earlier on Thursday that she had a productive telephone conversation with Trump last week about working together on infrastructure.

Democrats want the White House to back significant additional federal funds to rebuild crumbling U.S. roads, bridges and airports, and Trump has previously suggested that a deal could be had.

1. $3 trillion, as Bernie has proposed, would be even better... but $2 trillion would be a good start.
