President Trump said Wednesday he won’t work with Democrats on infrastructure or anything else until they end their investigations of him. “You’re on the Senate Intelligence Committee,” Stephen Colbert reminded Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) on Wednesday’s Late Show. “Are you guys going to end the investigation?” “No,” she said. “Let’s just talk for a moment about this.”
So Trump’s “going to hold America’s infrastructure hostage over the issue of the investigation,” Harris said, connecting some dots. Almost half of American families are about $400 of unexpected expenses away from “complete upheaval,” she said. The average set of tires for a car costs $400, she added, and “why do people need new tires? Because the roads are falling apart.”
She does know she’s the senator representing California, the state that has had some of the worst roads in America long before Trump took office, right? Besides, I thought Obama fixed infrastructure, early in his first term.
