President Trump Just Made a MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENT — And Puts Shady Obama to Shame!

President Trump has had a terrific December of accomplishments. On the heels of his 12-day historic Asia trip, his signature tax relief bill is being reconciled in Congress and will cross his desk before Christmas. His recently unveiled National Security Strategy has been praised by Mark Levin and others as “like Reagan’s third term.”

But, despite all of his successes, Monday was a sad day for our President and for our country…

Before his “America First” national security speech, President Donald Trump addressed the Amtrak train derailment in Washington state. He was quick to reiterate something he has been saying since the beginning of his 2016 bid for the presidency: this country needs a new infrastructure plan!

At least three people were killed and more than 70 were injured when a high-speed passenger train derailed outside Tacoma, Washington. Several train cars tumbled from a highway overpass in the incident.

“Let me begin by expressing our deepest sympathies and most heartfelt prayers to the victims of the train derailment in Washington state,” Trump said. “We are closely monitoring the situation and coordinating with local authorities.”

The train accident that just occurred in DuPont, WA shows more than ever why our soon to be submitted infrastructure plan must be approved quickly. Seven trillion dollars spent in the Middle East while our roads, bridges, tunnels, railways (and more) crumble! Not for long!

My thoughts and prayers are with everyone involved in the train accident in DuPont, Washington. Thank you to all of our wonderful First Responders who are on the scene. We are currently monitoring here at the White House.

“It is all the more reason why we need to start immediately fixing the infrastructure of the United States,” he added.

For all of Barack Obama’s spectacular failures, this one is routinely overlooked. He allowed the country’s infrastructure to become dilapidated to the point of criminal negligence!

There are stretches of the national highway system that are practically un-drivable due to pot holes. Compare this country’s network of roadways and interstates with that of Canada or any European country and its’ a disgrace!

Finally, President Trump is doing what Obama never could or would…

Check out the details, per Fox News:

The Trump administration is reportedly preparing a $1 trillion infrastructure effort that is expected to be unveiled in early January.

Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared a state of emergency after Amtrak train 501 derailed about 7:30 a.m. local time along Interstate 5 as it was leaving the new Tacoma station.

A U.S. official told The Associated Press the death toll is expected to rise and track obstruction is being investigated as a possible cause of the derailment.

The National Transportation Safety Board said a “go-team” is departing from Washington, D.C., to investigate the derailment. The Federal Railroad Administration also tweeted it has investigators en route to the scene.

For eight ridiculous, non-sensical years, Barack Obama allowed this country’s roadways and transportation infrastructure to decline to the point of disaster. He was too busy remaking American culture in his preferred image, submitting to foreign governments, and selling the public the lemon that is Obamacare.
