Jan. 20 (UPI) — Out of all the campaign promises made by President-elect Donald Trump, Americans believe the most important pledge is the revitalization of the U.S. infrastructure, a Gallup poll indicates. More than two-thirds of Americans — 69 percent — told Gallup it is “very important” Trump “enact a major spending program to strengthen infrastructure.” Trump has proposed spending $1 trillion to upgrade roads, ports, bridges, public transportation and other transit systems. The Gallup poll was conducted via telephone interviews on Jan. 9 and Jan. 10 on a random sample of up to 814 adults in the United States. More than half of Americans also want Trump to reduce income taxes, to establish tariffs on foreign imports and to deport illegal immigrants who committed crimes.
