(FOX NEWS) – Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer said Tuesday that President Trump agreed to support a $2 trillion infrastructure spending package after meeting with him and other Democrats at the White House, though the details are not yet clear.
The president – a real estate developer before he was elected president – has long sought to strike a big infrastructure deal, but has faced some resistance from conservatives in his party over concerns about the country’s rising debt.
Democratic leaders, speaking to reporters outside the White House after meeting with Trump, called the meeting constructive.
“We agreed on a number – which was very, very good. Two trillion dollars for infrastructure. Originally, we started a little lower. Even the president was eager to push it up to two trillion dollars,” Schumer said.
The White House, in a written statement on the meeting, did not mention a dollar figure but called the session “excellent and productive.”
