AP Interview: Pelosi called Trump to discuss infrastructure
WASHINGTON (AP) — House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she dialed up President Donald Trump recently and requested a meeting to talk about working together on an infrastructure package.
Pelosi tells The Associated Press she believes “the president truly wants to have an infrastructure bill.”
She calls it an initiative they “can share.”
She said in a Wednesday interview that the two spoke last week and are planning to meet.
So goes the relationship between Washington’s two power centers as Trump and Pelosi cross the 100-day mark of the era of divided government. Theirs is a relationship like almost none other in Washington.
Even as Trump derides Democrats as “unhinged,” he pulls his punches with Pelosi. And while Pelosi criticizes Trump as “unfit” for office, she wants to work with him on shared priorities.
