Former Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx discusses Trump’s infrastructure plan

Former Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx expressed skepticism Thursday that President Trump’s $1 trillion infrastructure plan involving public-private partnerships will be able to cover all of the needed repairs. “When you read the fine print, what he’s talking about is basically a set of tax credits that generate about $137 billion in tax credits that he believes will produce $1 trillion of investment,” Foxx said in an interview on “CBS This Morning.” Foxx added that he thinks the plan would only cover some projects. Asked where he thinks the money should be spent first, Foxx said, “I think the money needs to be spent on where the clogs are the greatest — where the traffic and congestion is the most.”
