WASHINGTON - US President Donald Trump believes his country is now facing an infrastructure deficit. He thinks America needs roads, bridges, railroads and new shipping facilities. Therefore, he applied for a $ 1,5 trillion grant to the Congress to develop a new infrastructure.

As reported from voaindonesia.com (1/2/2018), the funding submission is conveyed by President Trump Speech as the State of Union, in front of United States Congress and the People of America.

President Trump even considered the current condition is "embarrassing" because, in 1931, his country built the Empire State Building in just a year, but now issued permission to build a new road takes 10 years.

He also believes that any draft law authorizing spending on new facilities should also speed up the project approval process to no more than 2 years.

President Trump also expressed his intention to use next year to reform the prison to help ex-prisoners get a second chance. Striving societies, including immigrant communities, can be helped by immigration policies, which Trump says is focused on the interests of American families, and calls the Americans as a "dreamers."

Trump said his administration had proposed a new bill, which he said would improve the immigration law and support border agencies so criminals and gangs could no longer benefit from loopholes in immigration rules.
