The infrastructure bill may be a place where Schumer's and Trump's visions align more than Trump's and his own party's do. HIllary Clinton's proposed infrastructure plan was far less expansive than Trump's.
McConnell told reporters earlier this month that “I hope we avoid a trillion-dollar stimulus.”
Washington is watching Schumer closely to see what deals he may be able to broker with the new president. Schumer said on the podcast he plans to be judicious, but isn't going to be blocking any pieces of legislation just because they are coming from Trump.
“We’re not going to oppose something simply because it has the name Trump on it, but we will certainly not sacrifice our principles just to get something done,” Schumer said.
