It's going to be "Infrastructure Week," again, apparently.


President Donald Trump on Tuesday tweeted that he wants to begin "Phase 4" (there was never an actual Phase 1, 2, or 3) of "our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill" – proving he has never accomplished this goal that he keeps trotting out, often as a distraction.

"With interest rates for the United States being at ZERO, this is the time to do our decades long awaited Infrastructure Bill," Trump tweeted. "It should be VERY BIG & BOLD, Two Trillion Dollars, and be focused solely on jobs and rebuilding the once great infrastructure of our Country! Phase 4."

The Washington Post's JM Rieger notes this would be at least the eighth time Trump has tried this.

Economist David Rothschild says if Trump had actually done a trillion-dollar infrastructure bill when he first took office it would have been "popular" and "productive."

Many on social media noted that construction workers, like many if not most Americans, are currently under stay-at-home directions, what the nation really needs right now is PPE, ventilators, and rent and mortgage checks, and food. Some called for a focus on creating a now very-proven necessary universal healthcare system. And some called for invoking the 25th Amendment.
