Trump Promises Infrastructure: "We Will Put New American Metal Into The Spine Of This Nation"

|

In his Detroit economic policy address on Monday, GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump promises to build the next generation of American infrastructure using "American steel" and "American workers." He says that Hillary Clinton is a "nominee from yesterday who offers only the rhetoric of yesterday, and the policies of yesterday."

Trump says that his administration, to contrast, is "going to look boldly into the future."

"We will build the next generation of roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, sea ports and airports that our country deserves," he promised. "American steel will send new skyscrapers soaring. We will put new American metal into the spine of this nation."

"It will be American hands that rebuild this country, and it will be American energy - mined from American sources - that powers this country."

"Our country will reach amazing new heights," he said. "All we have to do is stop relying on the tired voices of the past."

Full transcript:

Detroit – the Motor City – will come roaring back. We will offer a new future, not the same old failed policies of the past.

Our party has chosen to make new history by selecting a nominee from outside the rigged and corrupt system.

The other party has reached backwards into the past to choose a nominee from yesterday – who offers only the rhetoric of yesterday, and the policies of yesterday.

There will be no change under Hillary Clinton – only four more years of Obama.

But we are going to look boldly into the future.

We will build the next generation of roads, bridges, railways, tunnels, sea ports and airports that our country deserves.

American cars will travel the roads, American planes will connect our cities, and American ships will patrol the seas.

American steel will send new skyscrapers soaring.

We will put new American metal into the spine of this nation.

It will be American hands that rebuild this country, and it will be American energy - mined from American sources - that powers this country.

It will be American workers who are hired to do the job.

Americanism, not globalism, will be our new credo.

Our country will reach amazing new heights.

All we have to do is stop relying on the tired voices of the past.

We can’t fix a rigged system by relying on the people who rigged it in the first place.
