WBSM TV: Keating Says Trump’s Infrastructure Plan Won’t Happen
U.S. Representative William Keating (D-MA) dropped some news on President Donald Trump's proposed infrastructure improvements during his weekly appearance on WBSM with Chris McCarthy Friday.
Keating said that the money just isn't there to support what the President has promised.
"Because the tax bill that came through put us in debt so far, we won't see a significant infrastructure bill," Keating said. "We won't, because the money's simply not there. We're going to find time and time again going forward, the effect of taking $1.5 trillion that we don't have."
The congressman also talked about the negative economic impact he thinks Trump's tariffs will have on the U.S. economy.
"Hopefully he understands the different tariff decisions he's making are going to have a very negative effect back home," Keating said.
Keating also discussed a ceremony earlier this week in which former Vietnam prisoner of war Bradford Holmes of Wareham was awarded a POW medal, and also mentioned that President Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner will not be getting the same level of security clearance he had before it had been revoked recently.
