Given the way that the mainstream media has been spinning the Trump presidency, you would think that Americans are closer to warring with one another than they are to working together.
Day in and day out we are inundated with innuendo and insinuations from an infotainment industry run amok. Their goal is to kick the figurative hornets’ nest of the American people by exploiting emotions through scandal. These basic cable channels and online echo chambers are agitating us on purpose, folks, because that is what garners ratings.
Despite this bleak outlook, however, the President the “resistance” democrats do appear ready to agree on at least one major policy decision.
Democratic congressional leaders said President Trump agreed to aim for a $2 trillion infrastructure package in a White House meeting on Tuesday, though it remains unclear how they will seek to pay for it.
In unusually positive comments about negotiations with the president, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D., N.Y.) both praised the meeting as productive and said they had agreed to return in three weeks to hear Mr. Trump’s ideas about how to pay for an infrastructure bill.
“There was goodwill in this meeting and that was different than some of the other meetings that we’ve had,” Mr. Schumer said.
Mrs. Pelosi said the two sides had “come to one agreement: that the agreement would be big and bold.”
Infrastructure has been a hot topic of conversation in the nation as of late, with the idea of rebuilding the American roadways and public works being seen as perhaps one of the last non-partisan issues in existence.
Perhaps this step, being taken in unison by the President and the democrats, can help restore some of our national civility.
