Trump Missed Opportunity to Show Visionary Leadership on Infrastructure

By Admin

Larry Willis, President of the Transportation Trades Department, AFL-CIO (TTD), issues this statement in response to today’s failed infrastructure meeting between President Trump and Congressional leaders:

“President Trump sidestepped a critical opportunity to show the visionary leadership needed to rebuild this country and secure America’s standing as a global, economic leader. By putting politics before our nation’s growing infrastructure crisis, the president abdicated his responsibilities and ignored campaign promises he made to working families. While we are disappointed in the president’s conduct today, transportation labor will not stop advocating for the investments we know are needed to create good jobs and power our economy forward.”
