The leader of the Senate minority, Chuck Schumer, said Tuesday that congressional Democrats and President Trump had reached an agreement on a $ 2 trillion infrastructure plan at a meeting at the House. white.
Schumer said that they had started talks with a smaller number, but that "even the president was eager to do so".
He added that with bridges, roads and highways, the infrastructure plan would put a "big emphasis" on broadband and clean energy.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said: "It's about jobs, jobs, jobs" and agreed that the plan should be "ambitious and bold".
Schumer said the group engaged in the talks would meet again in about three weeks to hear the president's suggestions on how it would be funded.
He said that Trump's support for any plan would go a long way towards ensuring the passage to the GOP-controlled Senate.
Both Pelosi and Schumer dismissed questions regarding cooperation with Trump on infrastructure while he was blocking Congressional investigations into him, his administration and his finances.
"We can come up with ideas about infrastructure and the House and Senate can continue to monitor," Schumer said.
