In Trump’s 2015 book, “Crippled America: How to Make America Great Again,” he wrote, “Domestically, we need to undertake a massive rebuilding of our infrastructure…You go to countries like China and many others and you look at their train systems and their public transport. It’s so much better. We’re like a third-world country.”

In 2016, candidate Trump had this to say about our country’s infrastructure: ““We’ve spent $4 trillion trying to topple various people. If we could’ve spent that $4 trillion in the United States to fix our roads, our bridges and all of the other problems – our airports and all of the other problems we’ve had – we would’ve been a lot better off. I can tell you that right now.” In his 2016 election night victory speech, he said, “We are going to fix our inner cities and rebuild our highways, bridges, tunnels, airports, schools, hospitals, and we will put millions of our people to work as we rebuild it.”
