Even our founding fathers have held the importance of infrastructure close to heart, never doubting its significance in our country. Unfortunately, just turning on the news can provide us with various headlines illustrating how the United States is facing destruction when it comes to our infrastructure’s foundation. Although President Trump has indicated that this issue is one of the easiest to tackle, experts are making it clear that this is an important part of legislation, and that it should not just be a running joke among those in office.
- Even quite recently, historically speaking, the American Society of Civil Engineers has given United States infrastructure a low grade.
- Less than 3 years ago, President Trump addressed the issue of infrastructure in a speech in December of 2017.
- Direct from his oval office, the current U.S. president noted that infrastructure was an easy task, in fact the “easiest” and that “we’ll have that done pretty quickly.”
“Since our nation’s founding, our leaders have addressed the importance of infrastructure.”
