Vice President Mike Pence said the Trump administration will move “vigorously” on an infrastructure package and welfare reform now that Congress has passed a tax reform bill.
“To see the Congress of the United States come together, pass the largest tax cut in American history was deeply inspiring to me,” Pence told CBS News during a surprise trip to Afghanistan.
“You’re going to see this administration move on vigorously to an agenda which will include infrastructure and welfare reform,” he continued.
Trump has suggested welfare reform may be next on his agenda, though he has also indicated an infrastructure bill could be the next legislative item.
Trump promised during the presidential campaign that he would deliver a $1 trillion infrastructure plan. Early Friday, he said infrastructure would be a good place to start working with Democrats.
“At some point, and for the good of the country, I predict we will start working with the Democrats in a Bipartisan fashion,” Trump tweeted. “Infrastructure would be a perfect place to start. After having foolishly spent $7 trillion in the Middle East, it is time to start rebuilding our country!”
