Billionaire real estate mogul Donald Trump, who has indicated he's likely to seek the Republican nomination for the presidency in 2016, took to Twitter on Tuesday night following the Amtrak derailment to tell followers that he is the only candidate who has the know-how to fix the country's antiquated infrastructure.
Some 40 minutes later, he responded to a follower who asked if politicians were unable, who then might solve "the country’s horrible infrastructure problems."
The Northeast Regional Amtrak train carrying 238 passengers and five crew members was en route to New York from Washington, D.C., when it derailed in Philadelphia.
