I have a “green new deal”. Quit spraying herbicide on your lawn weeds, polluting the ground water, and eventually killing us and everything else. Don’t like “weeds”? Cut them yourself by hand or use an electrical weedeater.

Hell no, spending on infrastructure isn’t on Trump’s list. He did lie about it the other day if that counts.
It’s other countries that build dykes, and levies and locks, and widen and repave roads. Build mass transit systems for the people, instead of war machine loot.
Our power grid sits, lonely from waiting for a green energy upgrade or replacement.
Nope we spend on walls, bombs, hundreds of more drones, military experimenting and engineering, and screw the parks and museums.
