President Donald Trump credited the American spirit and work ethic for building the nation’s infrastructure in his State of the Union speech on Tuesday and called on Congress to craft legislation to modernize it.
“As we rebuild our industries, it is also time to rebuild our crumbling infrastructure,” Trump said. “America is a nation of builders.”
“We built the Empire State Building in just one year,” Trump said. “Isn’t it a disgrace that it can now take ten years just to get a minor permit approved for the building of a simple road?”
