While most in the beltway followed either the non-story about the Trump campaign colluding with Russia or the unmasking and illegal leaking of American citizens’ names to the press, President Trump tried to get his agenda back on track speaking to the Building Trades Unions National Legislative Conference yesterday.
Watch as I show you the highlights and why its so important for Trump to get his agenda back on track after his first failure at healthcare reform.
They don't call him the blue collar billionaire for nothing. No President has ever connected with the men and women in the trades like Trump does, and this is his base.
These are the people that put him in office, so it was great to see him speaking directly to them again.
Trump reiterated his trillion dollar infrastructure investment plan, one that unlike previous Obama era stimulus plans will feature unions investing their pensions as well as public private partnerships to ensure the American tax payer doesn't bear the entire burden.
This plan could be a bi-partisan win for Trump, and an opportunity to take back the narrative from the fake news media.
