Trump Donates His Salary to Dept. of Transportation, Invests in Infrastructure
We've all been driving down a city road dreaming about Crispy Cream donuts at some point in our lives. Suddenly, our donut thoughts are interrupted as our heads hit the car ceiling. Pothole. Bent the car's frame. Perhaps the car is even totaled. Well, Trump wants to fix the pothole problem, promote economic growth, and cut down on government spending. Here's how.

"Today, the president is proud to donate his fourth quarter, 2017 salary to the Department of Transportation to support their programs to rebuild and modernize our crumbling infrastructure," Sanders said.
"Infrastructure is the backbone of our economy and its key to keeping our country competitive," Chao said.
"The president's proposal will create new jobs, strengthen our economy and improve the quality of life for everyone.
Trump's infrastructure plan, announced Monday, aims to spark $1.5 trillion in investment with $200 billion in federal funding.
That's a substantial amount of money. Especially for a guy who, according to the left, "doesn't care about the American people." American potholes will be filled to a whole new high. Just like pot holding states. Generosity.
The president has passed legislative measures to help the average Joe, Joanna, and non-binary Blue-Jay. Tax cuts for all. New blue collar jobs to match the blue hair of homeless feminists with a college degree in social justice. For once, a politician who isn't all talk, and more walk on the feels of the left. Progressives complain Trump isn't spending as much as Obama in the past. True. Less than half. Seems like progressives don't understand this thing called "national debt." Or debt in general. Thus the homelessness.
Truth is, Trump is doing something for the American people, and doing it well. Although, it doesn't sound like he's spending as much as he promised on infrastructure. Nonetheless, there's not much to criticize about his other moves, including fewer potholes, tax cuts, and less government spending.
While we're on the subject, here's an interesting little flashback for you.
