Schumer says Trump and Democrats agree on $2 trillion infrastructure deal
Ed. note: This is potentially extremely important news if in fact this $2 trillion infrastructure rebuilding plan takes place. Does this signal the collapse of the old economic system in the US to be replaced with a new monetary system possibly a gold-backed system in combination with cryptocurrencies? We certainly do live in interesting times with equally interesting theories about what is politically and economically going on in America.

Democratic leaders emerged from the White House Tuesday to announce they had agreed to a budget of $2 trillion over 25 years for infrastructure improvements with President Trump.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer said congressional investigations into the president’s behavior and finances had not soured what they characterized as a “very constructive meeting.”
They said they would meet again in three weeks’ time to begin discussing how to pay for the work.
Schumer said: “It is clear that both the White House and all of us want to get something done on infrastructure in a big and bold way.”
“There was goodwill in this meeting. That was different than some of the other meetings that we’ve had, which is a very good thing,” he said.
Rebuilding America’s crumbling roads, bridges, and water networks has long been seen as a potential area of bipartisan agreement, boosting the economy and creating jobs.
However, previous meetings between Trump and the two most senior Democrats in Congress have not always gone as planned.
In January, the president walked out of a meeting to discuss ending the government shutdown, calling it a “waste of time.”
