Trump and Clinton propose plans to increase U.S. infrastructure spending
It is one of the few things that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton agree on: The U.S. needs to spend more money on itself.
Clinton has proposed $275 billion in new infrastructure spending over the next five years, to go along with another $25 billion in loans and guarantees to support private-sector investments. Trump, a builder by blood, has pledged to double that figure, at least. He has called for spending up to $1 trillion on new roads, bridges, broadband, and more. (And that’s not even counting the fantastical Mexican-financed wall.)
