Mulvaney says Trump budget will have money for wall

Topping the priorities in the budget plan is the $200 billion request in federal funds to spur about $1.5 trillion in infrastructure investments with state, local and private partners, Mulvaney said.

Trump is set to host a meeting with state and local officials on his proposal Monday, but it is not clear if any of them will be from NY.

The rest of the money would support other infrastructure-related undertakings, including existing loan programs like the one operated by the Environmental Protection Agency under the Water Infrastructure Finance and Innovation Act, which White House officials said could leverage up to $40 in local and private money for every $1 in federal investment.

White House budget director Mick Mulvaney on Sunday said the Trump administration will roll out a budget on Monday that will include funds to build the president's long-promised wall along the Mexican border.

The US$1.5 trillion will come from a range of incentives and instruments in which government funding will play a lesser role than they do now, instead being used to match and leverage local funding.

President Donald Trump on Friday signed a spending measure that would allocate a defense budget of $700 billion for fiscal year 2018 and $716 billion for FY 2019, The Associated Press reported Sunday. Through a platform called, "one agency, one decision", they would create a lead federal organization to coordinate and work with other permitting agencies and come to a final decision on all projects within two years. But the fund would match investments only up to $0.20 on the dollar at the maximum level of federal investment.

The administration official suggested Gateway could seek funding from both the $100 billion and the transformative program funds.

But irate conservatives pointed to projections that the increased spending puts the government on track to hit a $1.2 trillion deficit in 2019 and to record trillion-dollar-plus deficits far into the future. "That will result in tolls - Trump Tolls, I would call them - across the country in highways that we now are able not to have tolls on", he said.

It was recently revealed that Xiaomi could skip the Mi 7 launch at MWC as well, similar to what Huawei and HTC will do. The patent also shows no bezels around, thus making it possible to achieve a 100 per cent screen-to-body ratio.

But even an investment of $1.5 trillion towards infrastructure over the next decade won't be almost enough to keep pace with the needed repairs. The rural programme aims at that, the officials said. The American Society of Civil Engineers said past year that the USA would need to invest $4.59 trillion by 2025 to improve the country's infrastructure.

A second major piece of the plan involves reforms to the federal permitting process, aimed at cutting the amount of time it takes for infrastructure projects to gain approval.

The White House argues that funding is only one component of the president's infrastructure plan.

The plan would also increase workforce participation by extending Pell Grant eligibility to workers who want to receive technical training and lowering standards for professional licensing requirements and eligibility.
