The US president predicted that Republicans would start cooperating with Democrats "in a bipartisan fashion" and suggested to start with his infrastructure plan.
Trump also stressed the necessity to invest money in the United States after having spent enough abroad.
At some point, and for the good of the country, I predict we will start working with the Democrats in a Bipartisan fashion. Infrastructure would be a perfect place to start. After having foolishly spent $7 trillion in the Middle East, it is time to start rebuilding our country!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 22, 2017
After a deadly train crash on Monday in the US state of Washington, which resulted in three fatalities, Trump said his "soon to be submitted" infrastructure plan must be approved quickly.
Both Democrats and Republicans in Congress have called for massive investments to repair aging US roads, bridges, railroads and other infrastructure, with an investment of at least $1 trillion.
