WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump called on Tuesday for a $2-trillion infrastructure package, saying cheap credit now allows for a“bold” initiative just when the US economy is reeling from the coronavirus shutdown. “With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill,” Trump tweeted.

He said “it should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country!”
