RUSH: President Trump’s about to wrap up an impromptu press conference at the White House. He’s got some hard hat guys sanding behind him. It was an infrastructure type gathering. This has been… it’s so much fun to watch this.

By the way, the press event today at the White House that I just characterized for you is on the deregulation that would allow construction projects to happen faster. It was exactly about that which I was making the point. Trump is a results-oriented guy. This was an event, was a press event on the deregulations the administration wants to do that would allow construction to happen faster. There was not one question on that, by the way.

Not a surprise, but nevertheless, I wanted to pass it on, that the Drive-By Media did not ask one question about it. And, of course, the people there that were assembled standing behind and next to the president would be the beneficiaries of this. It’s a plan to get rid of all kinds of red tape that raises the cost and lowers the speed and the pace at which projects get done, which would also reduce the opportunities for payoffs and graft and so forth.

The longer you string a project out, the more people you involve in it, the more hands can dip into the payment pool, so to speak. This is a classic thing.

Trump has long said that he wants to ramp up and really improve, rebuild America’s infrastructure. It’s one of the first things that he talked about after he was inaugurated. It was a big part of his campaign. In fact, it would be so expensive he originally proposed a public-private partnership to get it done where there be public money, government money, and private sector money pooled together to bring it up and make it happen at a more rapid pace than it otherwise would.

It kind of languished, but this is the kind of thing. This is what average, ordinary Americans complain about.
